The Bainbridge Island Winter
Farmers Market runs for two more weekends. We'll be missing the last
one, so this coming weekend will be your last chance to visit us at the
Farmers Market until Spring 2008. Details
at the website
. Hope to see you there!
▪ Locally grown wine for the holidays
When visiting friends and/or family during the holidays, a bottle of
locally produced wine is almost always appreciated. Our wine is sold
Redmond and Olympia Whidbey Island,
so even if you can't make it to Bainbridge, there's a store near you
where you can still pick up a
bottle in time for holiday festivities!
▪ On the website -- New harvest panorama, Autumn photos
we were harvesting the block of Madeleine Angevine a couple of months
ago, our friend Garret Veley
showed up with his panorama camera and took pictures. He also helped
out picking! I
finally got around to posting that and a handful of other nice Autumn
pictures of the vineyard.
▪ In the vineyard -- Rain!
It's not often that Seattle area weather makes the national news -- our
massive rain influx last week was something amazing! Our driveway was
12" deep in fast running water all day Monday, but it mostly survived
it. We had springs popping up everywhere! I spent the day soaking
wet, trenching with a
shovel, and managed to redirect the greatest threats to the
vineyard topsoil, and the cover crop did the rest, so all is well
here. I'm grateful for our success, as many people I've talked to were
not as lucky and
have tales of great destruction.
▪ 2005 Müller Thurgau -- sold out
It's official -- we are sold out of the 2005 MT. We are now
selling the 2006 vintage. The 2006 is similar to the 2005, but with a
slightly softer mouthfeel and slightly lower acid. This means that
it's even easier to simply sip and enjoy than the 2005!
▪ Outlets -- BI Harbor Square Wine Shop
Here on Bainbridge, Harbor Square Wine Shop gets an extra commendation
-- they have put our Perennial Vintners poster on the wall of the
shop! It is the only winery advertisement there, the other posters are
showing WA and OR wine regions. They are also rapidly approaching our
top sales outlet. Thanks guys!
