September: ANOTHER new addition

We added an additional member to the team! Welcome baby Eleanor, happy and healthy and right on time for our first harvest… then on to HARVEST TIME!! We had our hands forced to harvest with an early snow storm. We received about 3 inches of snow and wicked cold weather as the month ended, but we were able to harvest nearly 1500 pounds of grapes.

Figuring out what to do with about 100 gallons of grape juice. We purchased four small tanks to allow us to proceed with making some test wines from the first harvest.

The (building) addition is coming along and nearing completion, and the concrete has been laid for the foundation of the winery! Now to await some warmer weather to start the construction process.
