Not a huge amount of change since my last video of the site, but there has been some work done! We had a few trees cleared that I didn’t show in the video. Mainly those trees were in the parking lot area, and were becoming hazards since they were slowly dying.
We’ve been planning to add brewery equipment to the production cellar, and after picking up a 1-barrel system early in July, Clyde gave it a trial run this past weekend. It’s still fermenting, so we don’t know how his first try tastes yet, but we are eagerly anticipating the results!
Clyde is heading out this weekend to pick up a grape press, and we are also trying to get bottling supplies on hand so we can bottle the wines we’ve been making at Red Moose Winery. A conversation with “the feds” about updating our federal permit was delayed this week, so I’m still not sure when we’ll be able to have something available to you all again. As soon as I know anything on that front, I’ll be sure to post here and on our social media pages.
So how about you? What have you been up to this week? I’d love to read about your adventures in the comment section. Cheers!

Do you love picnics at the winery (or anywhere!), but find yourself forgetting items for your picnic basket? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered here in the tasting room and can supply most items that you forgot – just ask at the tasting room counter.
Plus, I’ve also created a picnic basket checklist that you can download, print off, and check off once you’ve added the items to your basket. There’s plenty of space for you to add your own items to the list, so this is will be a versatile tool for your next picnic!
