Iced Vine....er is it Wine?

Gosh, finding something interesting to write about in the dead of winter is worse than...allergies...a whining baby...25 degree weather...ok, you get my drift.

Our wine is aging well in the tank. I just tried the Merlot today and it is smooth and a gorgeous pinky purple color. I'm really happy with it.

We got a bit of an icestorm here yesterday. Of course, everyone on the Shore was in a panic (BREAD! MILK! LAXATIVES!) but I was warm in my leggins with a glass of Diana's Delight. Life is good.

I did venture out to take the below pic because this front page was looking really sad and boring.

Hope your winter is almost over.

Winery Open on Saturdays!

We've decided to open on Saturdays in January and February! A combination of missing our friends and visitors and needing to make money for bottles is the reason, LOL! We're also filling up the calendar with special events. If you are looking for a fun place to hold a meeting, let us know. We LOVE parties.
