Shriner's Christmas party

Windswept Winery was honored to host the Shriner's for Christmas Party and Wine Tasting.

The event included sumptous meal of Windswept Brisket, Chicken Land Rush Alfredo, veggies, rolls, potatoes, salad, and an amazing Chocolate and Raspberry Decadance Dessert.

The evening featured a very entertaining gift will have to ask one of the attendees for more information on that....
Lack of a picture here is testimony to my new camera; and my lack of understanding of the new camera...haven't given up, though.
Thanks to everyone of this fun, fun group. We had a wonderful time with everyone.

The sweet beauty Whispering Wind White is now back in the bottle! It is delightful to savor this tropical fruit, asian pear-tinged and apricot-hinted luscious wine. We are happy to have it back on the shelves, and ready for you.
Don't delay if this is one of your favorites. We have many cases pre-ordered, and want everyone to get their share!
Look for the green label.
Made with the Vignoles grape.

Fall in the Vineyard

Finally a frost this week, and the vines in the vineyards have lost their leaves.
We couldn't have asked for a longer or more gentle fall for the vines to harden for the winter. Hopefully the vines will have a nice gentle winter's nap, and be ready for spring.
There were a few snowflakes late Friday night, and the wind was blowing. It certainly felt like Winter had begun!

Wow, today is the normal first-freeze of the year, and it is still warm and wonderful. There is no freeze in the forecast, and that is wonderful. Hopefully, the freeze will hold off just a little while longer, so the vines will fully prepare for the approaching winter.
The normal first freeze date plus a week or so would be awesome for the vines

Harvest time again

Grapes coming in, wine bubbling away, the winery smells wonderful! We love this time of year. It's the end of one portion of the season: growing grapes, and the beginning of another, the WINE! It is awesome to bring in the crop, and get it moving towards that wonderful wine.

Hot, Hot Hot

Whew, It is hot.
We always get the question; is the hot weather hard on the grape vines?
The answer is yes, and no. Generally speaking the hot weather is not a problem, if it is hot and dry, it tends to keep the fungi away. If the temperature gets above about 98, the vines tend to really slow down their processes and start stressing.
So we don't like it to be too hot, but it can get pretty warm and still be ok with them.

So now you know if you ever wondered. ;-)

Udall High School Prom -2010

Wow, what a wonderful event!
Everyone laughed and ate, and danced, and have a terrific time.
The DJ knew how to rock the place, and the dresses and ties were amazing!!!
These young people really know how to throw a party, and we were thrilled to have the Udall High School Junior Senior Prom.
If some of the young people that attended send me their coolest pictures, I will get a couple of pics in here.

(OF course, folks, it was non-alcoholic but there was some sparkling grape juice in attendance!)

The Vineyard is Budding

Pruning is done - WOO HOO
We are always thrilled to have that little chore behind us.
And just in time, too, because the leaves are coming out and spring is on the way.
We planted a few new types of grapes to see how they are going to do here in our vineyards.
Later this year I will try to get some pictures on the blog so you can see how they 'look', and we can decide together if you like the way they are growing.
Try not to be too hard on them, they are babies!

Everyone had a fabulous time, and of course we are already planning the next one! We have a 'zinger' or two planned for next year.
Remember very limited reservations are taken, and we can get you on the list anytime during the year.

Snows on the vines

We have had some snows...have you noticed?
The vines are all safely in dormancy, so all is well with them.
We are just hopeful that they will not bud early and then have a late freeze. That is very hard on the vines, and on the wines that come from them.
The last few years have been tough ones for the freezes in the spring, so hopefully we have a 'gentle' spring in store.
