Fermenting, Carbonation, Fining, Filtration, and Bottling: Wine Making Continues

We received more Concord and Catawba juice last week and started fermentations. The cellar crew transferred Cranberry Wine to the carbonation tank to begin the process of preparing the wine for carbonation. This will become this year’s batch of Oskyfizzante® Cranberry.

The cellar staff is fining the 2014 Iowa Marquette and also the Iowa Cuvée 220. They filtered a batch of Red, White, & Blue® which is being bottled this week.

Finally, the Concord arrives almost weekly this time of year. As we get tanks free of other wines, we fill them up with what becomes Red, White, & Blue®.
