Harvest Update

The grapes first harvested this year, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, are ageing nicely in oak barrels. Vignoles and Cabernet Franc and about a third of our Riesling are in stainless steel tanks fermenting. Today in the vineyard the crew is harvesting Gewurztraminer and another batch of Riesling! Of the seven varietals that we grow, Videl Blanc is the only varietal yet to be perfectly ripe. We also have a batch of Merlot from Seneca Lake fragrantly fermenting in tubs in the barrel room. These grapes will be used in an upcoming Merlot and an upcoming Meritage! The consensus around the Finger Lakes is that this season produced a superior crop but a smaller yield. Between our own crop and the grapes that we purchase from other Finger Lakes vinyards this year our production is actually up! I, for one, can't wait for next year to taste the results!
