Cider God Blog Takeover, June Edition

Welcome back guys and gals, its now June which means its time for another update for Harvest Ridge Winery through the eyes of Damon, the Cider God. A lot of cool happenings are going on right this minute but first let me catch you up on what’s gone on since the last update. We had a pretty busy end to the month as we bottled like crazy. On one day alone, we knocked out 2015 Cab-Merlot and Merlot. The next week we bottled 2016 Chardonnay and the week after that we bottled Blue Line White. Blue Line White you ask? I’ll explain… Blue Line White was a nameless white blend we made. We were unsure...

Desperate Times…

Desperate Times…

… call for desperate measures. On New Year’s Eve, my husband and I opened a bottle of wine that we had been saving for 10 years. Truth be told, we don’t actually LOVE cellared wine, but can’t help but enjoy the romance of buying something to save and open in several years. There is something about that whole “delayed gratification” thing. What is not romantic is when you open this very special bottle only to find out that it is corked. (Our kids can verify.

Dare Accepted.

So after the “DON’T SAVE IT!!” blog post (original post here) describing wine that my husband and I got many years ago, there were some people that dared me to try it. (After all, we all knew it wasn’t going to get any better, right? What did I have to lose?) In addition to the Hawaiian wine (from Volcano Winery) about which I originally posted, I also found a bottle from Mt. Nittany Vineyard and Winery in Pennsylvania (Go Penn State!). This bottle was given out at the wedding of some close friends (in 2004). It was also a white wine and probably far past its time. We...

News for August…

All the news that’s fit to print… and that can’t be crammed into our already bursting newsletter! Harvest Ridge Staff Updates From our owner, Chuck Nunan: At Harvest Ridge, this is a busy time of the year. Many exciting things are going on in the vineyard and elsewhere on the property. This year’s plantings, Barbera and Chambourcin are doing remarkably well. We can’t wait as the vines continue to mature. In the production facility we are wrapping up bottling our 2013 reds this month and are preparing for harvest — which will be in full swing next month....
