The long awaited Blueberry and Raspberry are almost done!! There have been a lot of sad customers since we sold out in early October but another few weeks and they should be bottled and ready to go home with you. The video above shows how much CO2 is produced as yeast turn the sugar in juice into alcohol. It's a pretty cool process!
Bottling delicious citrus...
The first bottling of 2011 has come!!!! Our La Crescent has rich citrus, peach, and apricot aromas with a nice crisp acidity. If you liked the 2010 La Crescent they you'll love the 2011. Our friends at Train Wreck Winery in Algona, IA decided to come and lend a hand which was extremely helpful! We were able to bottle 100 cases in about three hours. The wine went from the tank through our plate and frame filter (filtered down to .5micron) show in the first pic below, then on to our membrane filter which gets the wine down to .45 micron and on to the bottle filler.
A little peak at the bottling line.... One variety down, just eleven more to go!
