Good to the Last Drop!
Storm Press Update…
Tomorrow’s press is on. Weatherman predicting showers tomorrow and the next day, so I have no choice. Fermentation is complete on our zin blend, so tomorrow is as good as any.
The Good News…
I have set up Presszilla indoors. I have put plastic on the floor and walls to help protect the winery. Hopefully, the winery will not resemble the “Animal House” food fight scene when we are done. Despite the weather forecast, we should stay dry. Dress for dampness non the less as a precaution.
If any of you want grape skins for your garden, bring garbage pails and a shovel.
Hopefully see some of the faithful tomorrow. Could use a bit of help. Should be done by lunchtime.
My thanks always,
Our 2016 Coop… It’s time to pick up your wine.
Our 2017 Coop…
Level 1(2 case reserve) $190. per case
Level 2 (3-9 case reserve) $180. per case
Level 3(10 or more case reserve) $170. per case
Individual bottles, beyond a reserve, $16. each
Winemaker recommendation…to get back to a $180. per case rate, consider Level 2.
FYI:To be consistent going forward, when a Coop member elects to take half of their reserve before picking up the remainder, they will be charged 50% of their discounted price for their remaining reserve. As an example, in a two case reserve, if the case price was $190., and they take one case before the second, they will incur an addition $95., thus leaving a balance on the second case of $95.
