Hi everyone, its been a while since the last post. We cannot believe that it is all ready the middle of November. All of our wine is bulk aging and waiting to be fined. The vineyard is completely dormant now, with no leaves in sight. Due to our mild fall weather, the vines were able to change color, and go dormant on their own without a killing frost. This is the first time since we planted the vineyard that this has happened. The warm temperatures made a very picturesque fall in the vineyard. We are still meeting new people all the time, and our wine trail is picking up in popularity. (heartlandwinetrailmn.com) The suppers for November are all booked solid, but there is another scheduled for December 9th. If you would like to reserve a seat, please call the winery at 320-847-3060.
Our new barrel room and storage facility is all most complete. This will be a nice addition for us, and help us save some needed space in the winery. We ordered a few more barrels this year, and are anticipating the wines that are aging out from 2009.
Thanks to all who have been following the blog, and we hope to hear from you soon!!
