We have another new face in the winery these days as we get ready for Elaine to leave to have her baby.  Karen is a customer who saw our “help wanted” sign in the store and she has started with us, part-time.  She is a white wine drinker, but I am sure we will lure her to the dark (red, that is) side eventually!

Saturday November 8th is the last day to make 6 week wines.

“Winey” T-Shirt Order 

We are doing a pre-order on “winey” t-shirts.  I have been wearing mine for a couple of months and love it!  They are a womens fit t-shirt, which means it fits curvy bits 😉 and they wash perfectly (in the washing machine on cold…nothing special). This is a Canadian company which means the price is a lot lower than comparable suppliers, because we aren’t paying any duty!

They are $20 each and the sizing chart is below.  If you are interested for yourself or for Christmas gifts, call us at 384-2955 or send us an e-mail at  Orders are due by November 15th and take about 2 weeks for us to receive, so lots of time for Christmas . We will contact you when they arrive and take payment at that time.

Removing Labels from Commercial Bottles 

I was perusing Pinterest this weekend (here is the link to our Pinterest Page) and I found a Pin that tells you how to remove labels from your store bought bottles…I get asked all the time, the best way to remove these labels, so that they bottles can be re-used.  I haven’t tried it yet, so give this a try and let us know!

Fill your sink with hot, hot, hot water. Then fill each wine bottle with hot water and drop it into the sink. Next, add this secret potion: 1/2 cup baking powder 1 Tbsp dish soap 2 cups white vinegar Once you add the vinegar to the sink, it will get all fizzy for a second and the labels should come off.


Thanks for taking the time to read…Cheers!
