Frost Control Sprinklers at Work in the Vineyard.

Frost Coontrol Sprinklers - Nottely River Valley Vineyards, Murphy NC

April was cruel. Three of our nine blocks covered with, a water flow rate of 53 gallons/ minute. April 20’s low temperature of 23.6, with below freezing temperatures for 6.5 hours will definitely hurt the vines. The water has to run until all the ice is melted probably around 11am, ( total run time of about 9 hours). Boy, if we have a harvest this year we may have to change the label to “ICE AGE!”

SEASON OPENING SPECIAL!

Nottely Wine, Nottely River Valley Vineyards - Murphy, NCHello all!!…Only 8 more days until Opening Day for the 2017 Tasting season. To celebrate we are going to provide an additional wine
for tasting on the 21st, and 22nd . This wine is a three way blend of white wine from the Fantastic 2016 Vintage. It is a true Alsatian (Old World) style wine. We just removed it from the European Oak Barrels last week. We will continue bulk-aging it until this fall. Sometime this fall we will bottle it, and decide upon a name and a label for it. Release date is scheduled for April 2018. So come on out and get a sneak taste of this one of a kind wine.

Karen and I look forward to your visits, and serving you this year.

Cheers!
