Over the past few days, members of our vineyard / winery team, with some help from our grounds / maintenance team and Sandy’s Landscaping crew, have completed the site preparation and planting of close to 1,100 new vines.
When our vineyard was first planted 2009-2011, we selected six hybrid wine grape varietals suited to our climate with great wine making potential. In the years that followed, we’ve had a chance to carefully nurture and evaluate those original plantings.
Over this past winter, we made the decision to focus our limited vineyard space on three (of our original six) varietals that have performed best in our viticultural microclimate, and that have the best potential to consistently produce outstanding wines for our growing, award-winning wine portfolio.
The three wine grape varieties we have chosen to focus on are the three from which we have produced our first three Family Reserve wines from our “estate” vineyard:
Frontenac Gris: Lascito (rose’)
Aromella: Passione (white)
Marquette: Unita (red)
All three Family Reserve wines have been extremely well-received, and increased acreage for our Aromella and Marquette grapes should make those wines more consistently available. We anticipate harvesting from our new vines in 2019.
After the challenging 2014 and 2015 “Polar Vortex” winters, we were blessed with an exceptionally mild winter this year. Despite a frost scare last Monday, we have had an outstanding spring so far in the vineyard.
Our vines are well rested and ready to grow! Our core vineyard team members John Minor and Holly Brown, with assistance from our winery team and grounds personnel, are on board to coax their enthusiastic growth into a fruitful harvest.
Here is to a bountiful 2016!
