NEXT MONTH AT THE VINEYARD
We are now taking reservations for our 2013 Chardonnay Ice Wine due to be released Summer of 2015. With only a 350 bottle production it is certain to go fast.
Harvested and pressed at 10 degrees F in late December 2013. It was then cold fermented for 8 weeks to 11.5% ABV with 17 brix residual sugar.
Upon completion of fermentation the Ice Wine was put into our signature oak imitation barrels to age for 14 months.
Due to varietal as well as pores barrel aging and a dash of oak our Ice Wine is like no other.

No bees needed to pollinate these flowers.
Ohio’s premium wine growers have good reason to dread severe winters, but not so the decline of our honeybee population, or more specifically, its diminishing capacity to set fruits for numerous orchard and other crops. Grape flowers are relatively small and greenish, and their petals are rudimentary—strong evidence of adaptation for spontaneous self-pollination. No assistance by third parties needed thank you. On the other hand, you wouldn’t expect fragrance production to be essential, or even a beneficial component of this type of “self-compatible” botanical “breeding system”. Yet it’s present, and quite a pleasant aroma it is at that! Pictured above are what in mid September will be clusters of ripe grapes born by the German variety Muller-Thurgau. If you visit our vineyard soon you can discover for yourself that the “nose” of this grape and those of the dozen or so others that we grow is more than an exclusive characteristic of its wine.
