Our newest wine, Uplifting, is now in the bottle. Last night we assembled a crew of five and we worked feverishly getting the 285 gallons bottled. Our crew knocked it out in a couple of hours. Thanks Jerry, Sam & Marti for the great work! Apollo tried to help out, at least with the pizza, but was soon asked to leave! Uplifting is made from Traminette grapes, so it is a white wine. It has a great aroma and taste which we will tell you more about soon. We had given it just a touch of sugar to soften it on the palate a bit. I think it will be a hit for both dry wine fans and those that say they don't like a wine too dry. Now the bottles need some r&r from the rigors of bottling and then they will get labeled and capsuled. It should be available in the Cellar 426 Tasting room in by mid May!
