This past week was the end of our Summer Concert Series, Music in the Vineyard. We are planning on continuing the tradition next summer so keep an eye out for the release of our concert schedule next year. We will be having our Winter Wine Down Music Series this year with music from a variety of local musicians including the Buck Hollers, Stewart Foster, Carol Ann Jones, Jon Sochin and more. We will release the Wine Down schedule closer to November. In the mean time mark your calendars for our harvest festival Saturday October 7th. We will be hosting a band that day and there will be a plethora of activity happening at the vineyard that day as well. Grape Stomp Competitions, wagon rides, music wine tastings food and more. If you are planning on coming out to the Islands come out for the day swing by the vineyard and stop in at the apple orchards, Allenholm and Hacketts orchards on South Street. All free family friendly events on the island.
It’s almost harvest time and if you have any interest in harvesting please contact us at 802-324-5563. We harvest by hand and pay by the hour. It’s a great camaraderie of folks harvesting away. Depending on how the harvest goes our wine maker may chose to do something special. Maybe make a special vintage. This is how we got our Leon Millot Reserve. For the reserve we hand selected the best fruit, fermented in special oak barrels and aged to perfection. You never know what the harvest might bring.
