No Icewine

We won’t produce any icewine this vintage, we still have enough. Still, a lot of other winerys will give it a try this year, and it looks good. It won’t take to long this year to get the necessary frost.

It is not to much what is needed, just temperatures below -7 °C, a few helping hands, and still nice and healthy grapes hanging on the vine.

Not this ones I’m going to show you here 🙂

No icewine grapes, just the left overs from the last vintage after snowfall and temperatures around -1°C.
