Cleaning Tanks

Clyde spent a day racking wine on Wednesday.  He and I thought you might like to peek at what the dregs of the tank look like after a fermentation is over.  The buildup on the door of the tank is a combination of tartrate crystals and yeast cells. The liquid coming out includes both of those things, plus a small bit of wine and some water that he used to rinse down the tank after moving all the clear wine over to a clean tank.

Today Clyde is clearing out the main cellar so that we can host the band that plays tomorrow in indoors in case it rains.  So if you are looking to get out and relax tomorrow, come on by!  We’ll be open from 11am-6pm and will feature a local band called Special 20 tomorrow from 2-5pm.

Here’s a little you tube listen to Special 20:

Hope you all can join us this weekend!  We’ll also be hosting live music on Sunday from 2-5pm and the tasting room will be open on Monday from 11-6.  Cheers!
