Hi everyone -
It's almost 2013 and we have a lot going on!! We have produced 12 wines and won 5 medals and it's been a great journey so far.
Al went to Cornell University to get his distilling license at the end of November and we are looking forward to getting a still and producing some distilled spirits in addition to our great wine. Check back for more on that soon.
The grapes are dormant but that doesn't mean that we have slowed down too much in the winery. We are checking our wine to be bottled in the tanks and barrels and fine tuning it for the next bottling. So far it looks like this may be some of our best wine yet. We are excited to have won a Gold Medal for our 2009 Merlot Reserve in the Maryland Governor's Cup competition earlier this year as well as Bronze Medals for the 2009 Barbera Reserve and the 2009 Rose Barbera. We also bottled two new wines this year - a lovely, unoaked Chardonnay and a new sweet white "Pole Dancer". If you are in the Church Hill area stop by our tasting room on Saturday or Sunday to try them.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!
Al & Jennifer Cassinelli
