DRY ROSE’ is here! – Friday July 1 2022 noon! With summer in full swing we are releasing our Dry Rose’ for your enjoyment! This is 100% Chambourcin, a very dark red French Hybrid grape. The grapes were destemmed then pressed (not crushed, whole berry pressed) to minimize the color from the skin transferring to the juice. Non the less this is a darker Rose’ than we are used to, it is unfiltered or finned, as natural a product as we can produce. Come on out and enjoy our Provence style wine and Lavender patch.

Tomorrow June 5, 2020! This is the limited release of 144 bottles. 2016 was a fantastic vintage, the grapes we harvested, destemmed/crushed and fermented without the addition of sulfites. Fermentation was at 70F, and the first 50% of fermentation was by native yeast, then cultured yeast was added to make sure we reached a dry wine. The young wine was racked 3 times by January 2017, then racked into French Oak Barrels, there it remained until December 2018, racked into a stainless tank and allowed to marry until July 2019. It was then bottled (un-filtered, un-finned) and has been aging in the cellar ever since. We are sharing some of this with you now, and may at a future date release another limited number of bottles.
The nip in the air means it is time to RELEASE……….THE CAPTAIN’S GLUHWEIN! Available starting this Friday November 8, 2019 (this is a limited production) ! Come on out and have a glass of this Hot spicy grog! . All in time for the Holidays!! Cheers
