We bottled the 2023 Iowa Harvest Red this week and got a batch of our very popular Red, White, & Blue® ready for bottling next week. We started to cold stabilize a large batch of Edelweiss. This wine will be used to make three different wines: Star Spangled White®, Iowa Edelweiss, and Oskyfizzante® Iowa White and we will bottle these wines during the coming weeks. We labelled our Sweethearts Rosé so that it can be released next week.
We will also taste the wines in barrels to see how they are progressing. Valves and sensors related to our chiller are being replaced as soon as the replacement parts arrive. And, two pieces of equipment we use during harvest need maintenance or to be replaced well before harvest.
