The cellar team racked the tanks of Concord leaving bentonite (a fining agent) in the bottom of the empty tanks. The bentonite was washed out as the tanks were cleaned. This wine will be used to make Red, White, & Blue®. In fact, we will have made more Red, White, & Blue in 2015 than we ever have before.
We will be bottling Blackberry Wine and American Pink Catawba this week on Wednesday and Friday.
And, to get ready for harvest, we have been getting yeast, yeast nutrients, and fining agents ordered.
We have seven wines to get bottled before harvest starts.
