New Maple Wine

Maple Wine Release

Kris Tootle posing with the new Maple Wine from Fresh Tracks Farm.

After 4 years of playing around with this wine…here it is!

We started our maple syrup production as a way to diversify our farm and our lives.

It made sense…while things were a bit slow in the vineyard,

we could make use of the resources on our farm and tap some trees.

Well, we ended up having a lot of fun with it and, like most of our other projects, it grew and grew and grew.

Now we are completely nuts in the spring. Oh well!

Then we decided that we wanted to bring the different pieces of the farm

full circle to make a maple wine.

Stop by this Thursday for a free sample of this rich dessert wine.

(Thank you Kris for posing with the bottle so that I didn’t have to spend 3 hours trying to get a shot without glare)


Winemaker Walking

                Fletcher and I took a walk through the vineyard this morning looking for trouble.  After the lightning strikes and the heavy-as heavy-gets rain yesterday, we were expecting a mess. What we found was a healthy and vibrant vineyard. The crop looked balanced and beautiful . There is always such a sense of excitement and wonder on a morning like this. I think ahead to the flavors that I might find in the glass and I smile. It never ceases to amaze me. I started planting these vines in my early twenties and now my hands can’t stretch around some of the trunks. They are stalky and impressive.

                 It feels like spring is becoming summer. The days are getting longer and the luminous and fluorescent greens of spring are settling into their summer shades. We are celebrating this change with the expansion of our tasting room hours.
