Harvest 2014 and New Releases
October is a busy month with harvest and lots of enthusiastic visitors tasting our wines. While harvest got a late start we are furiously picking and pressing now, and will probably finish about the same time we usually finish. Most varieties have had a light crop, but a few have surprised us with more grapes than we anticipated. Winemakers Chris & Ben Stamp agree, “September’s prolonged warm, dry weather let the grapes ripen-up and develop great flavor”.
In the last week four of our 2012 wines sold out and the 2013 vintage of each was released. These new releases include the 2013 Abby Rose, 2013 Riesling, 2013 Glaciovinum and 2013 Port. Judging by the reaction of our visitors these wines are delicious. Each of these new releases would be nice choice for fall foods and holiday entertaining. Abby Rose makes a great sangria for your fall tailgating, while the Riesling goes with…everything. Glaciovinum is a perfect compliment to holiday desserts (pumpkin roll or carrot cake) and Port is wonderful around the fall campfire or by the fire after a cold day.
Whatever your fall adventures, we have the perfect Lakewood Vineyards wine to suit your needs.
Happy fall! Liz Stamp and the family at Lakewood Vineyards
