Our Winemaking Resolutions for 2015 – What Are Yours?

Happy New Year Winemakers!

What Winemaking Resolutions do you have for the New Year?
Below are some of our staff’s winemaking resolutions for 2015.
Maybe you guys can help hold us to them? 😉


          • To improve my personal winemaking skills and winemaking knowledge
          • To continue to grow my friendships and business relationships within the wine industr
          • To visit more wineries and winemaking groups


          • My resolution is to continue to find ways to enjoy winemaking and the business we are in.  Whether it is helping someone just starting out in making wine or someone starting a winery.  The passion we bring to this business is not something that can be imitated.


          • I would like to start trying more locally made wines
          • I too need to stop procrastinating on racking, etc…
          • I would like to work on expanding my pallet!  (sometimes I think it’s broken lol)


Frankie K: I have a couple!

          • I would like to drink more wine!  (I really mean that, I often choose beer when wine is available and would like to stop doing that.  Beer has a ton of calories!)
          • I would like to procrastinate less in my wine racking and other exercises.  I often find myself putting those things off because I am too busy, and the wine ends up suffering as a result.
          • And I would also like to drink more wine!



          • To try more wines from the East Coast as well as wines from other countries
          • To research new blends to try next vintage
          • To make a sparkling wine for the first time
          • To make Grapa for the first time



        • I would like increase my knowledge as it pertains to Malolactic Bacteria. When has my wine completely gone thru malo? When is the proper time to add sulfites?
        • I would like to take classes in becoming a Certified Wine Competition Judge


        • Visit more local wineries
        •  Improve my winemaking lab skills
        •  Learn more about wine and food pairings; what kind of wine does go with a big mac?
