Winemaker Notes

Dogwoods beginning to bloom and the air still chilled.  But the grapevines up the creek stand like giant stubby trees across the rugged Kentucky landscape, their buds swelling, ready to bust open in bloom in warm sunshine.  Dogwood winter remembered, we start forward to blackberry bushes blooming, and one more chilled morning.

In the foreground, the Muscat field looms under Peach Mountain blooms.  The 2017 Jalapeno Wave brews in the lower winery, to be ready for release by late summer, and even then, only available at the winery.  That's one wine we make with our own Muscat grapes and Kentucky grown Red Jalapeno peppers, a great wine for summertime coming!!
