Dear Grape Picking Friends;
Because of the late blossom this spring and the cool start to summer we have been agonizing over when to have our annual "Pick Your own Wine grapes Day".
All crops are late this season and it has been difficult decision.
We have decided to delay it one week to SUNDAY, Sept. 28th. This should allow all varieties to drop their acid levels, in particular the Frontenac.
This puts harvest critically late in September but we have decided it is best this year to risk it in the interest of better quality fruit (and wine).
WHEN: SUNDAY, Sept. 28th (a week later than normal)
TIME: 8:00 AM to Noon (or so)
PLACE: Great River Vineyard, Lake City, MN, 12 miles south of Red Wing, MN, 3 miles north of Lake City, right along Hwy. 61. - Link to Map
PRICE: $1.00/lb. (same as previous years) Crushing and destemming of red varieties is free if you bring your own buckets with sealable lids.
Thanks and we look forward to seeing you here. Call or email us if you have questions.
