Please take a few moments this weekend to thank those who have given so much, (even the ultimate gift) for all the FREEDOMS we daily take for granted.
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!”
The Tasting Room will be closed this Saturday, April 21, 2018. We will be away for a friend and neighbor’s funeral. We apologize for any inconvenience .
Come and enjoy the bud’s breaking in the vineyard, and the great spring day. We are releasing our 2015 CHARDONNAY this Friday. This is the last “Old World” Chablis style Chardonnay we will have until at least 2020.
To assist our customers with their holiday shopping we are opening the tasting room for bottle purchasing from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, November 27th through Thursday November 30th. We will be open normal hours (noon to 6 p.m.) on Friday and Saturday December 1st & 2nd.
Our “Captains” Gluhwein is available this week.
The tasting room will close for the season December 3rd and will reopen in April 2018. During this time bottle sales are available by appointment. Please call us at (828) 837-7822 and arrange a time for your purchases.

Hello 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.
Steve & Karen
