July has arrived and the Frontenac are beginning to show verasion. They are usually our first variety to harvest. We should get enough this year to have Frontenac wine to sell soon (but not too soon).
The rain we got this past week should really help the fruit. It is almost at the point that we don't want a lot of rain because it will reduce the sugar and flavor in the fruit. It can also cause the skin to rupture, much like tomatoes will do.
The grape stomp is coming soon, October 2nd will be be for we know it. We've confirmed that Ezra and Dilly will be back and we have a BBQ crew lined up. It should be a great day!
If you are interested in grapes or juice, please contact us and we can discuss what you are looking for and what we should have available. We have orders in from 2 wineries and some individuals, so do get in as soon as possible.
So far, the growing season has been generous to us. It should be a great harvest this year.
