Typically, at this time of year, the cellar has several different wines that are being readied for bottling. This week, we are filtering our Iowa Nouveau. We are also getting Oskyfizzante® Cranberry ready for bottling and racking Iowa Brianna off fining agents. We will blend our next batch of Rockets Glare Rosé® so we can make our Sweet Hearts Rosé and have it ready for sale in January.

Then, to add to the usual complications, we are suddenly experiencing shortages and out-of-stock situations on some juice varieties, some fining chemicals, and even labels.
