Falling into Fall

Wow did we have a wild ride this summer. After I blogged in late July, we got rain rain and more rain. Hurricane Irene alone dumped 8+ inches on us. The next weekend was another 5 inches. And we all know how much the grapevines HATE rain...so they were grouchy all through August and September and as a result, our harvest was low. Boo hiss! There's always next year!

I adore this time of year. It's so crisp and bright and the leaves are so crunchy under my horses' hooves. Trail rides through the ever changing forest with Twinkie make me soooo happy!

Making wine makes me happy, too...and our 2011 Chardonnay/Cayuga Blend (Maybe called "Half Assed Jack"-LOL), 2011 Riesling, and 2011 Cab Sauv is in the tanks. We'll be getting juice/grapes in the next few weeks to make more Whaleyville Red and a new Pinot Grigio (our Pinot vines are too young to produce yet.)

In the meantime, come visit! We have Wine Down Fridays from 6-8 with music by Bryce Butler and complimentary lite fare. It's a blast.
