Bottling Red, White, & Blue
Our cellar staff is making lots of Red, White, & Blue® and other wines that are very popular in the spring. Each week, another batch is bottled.
Last week, we made a change in our bottling schedule and bottled our Iowa Prairie Snow® iced wine. Speaking of Iowa Prairie Snow, we hosted guests from Ontario, Canada last week where they make lots of ice wine. They tasted Iowa Prairie Snow and were very complimentary. Their praise was very welcome.
Jonita, our Cellar Specialist, is working on some new red wine blends. Sometimes, it takes many trials to get just the right combination.
Finally, we have Blackberry and Cranberry Wines in the works. We racked the Cranberry Wine off its yeast lees and the Blackberry Wine is still finishing up its fermentation.
