We’ve decided to call the wassail this year. We thought about holding it indoors, but this wind is going to make highway 142 and the driveways awful.

We’ll try to catch up with a special event during bloom.

Thank you again, dear Friends and Fans, for a great 2013.

Annual Twelfth Night Wassail 1/5/14


Our annual Twelfth Night Wassail is coming up fast – as in next Sunday. We’ll open the winery at 4pm and go out into the orchard between 5 and 5:30.

Being your friends and give thanks to the trees for a bountiful harvest.

RSVPs appreciated, but not necessary.
If its a blizzard, we’ll post a cancelation here and on Facebook.

Inventory Update 10/30/13 : Should be stable to the end of the year


We have:

Appely Doux and Pear represent 2/3 of our best sellers. We should be good on Appely Doux through the end of the season – which is 12/15/13 this year.

We will be returning to scheduled weekend hours with midweek by-appointment next week.
