Lake Chelan Crush Events | Tildio, Four Lakes, and Vin du Lac | Lake Chelan, WA

29 October 2011
Published in Commercial

So to continue on the process of crush...Grapes from the vineyard come to processing. The first step: de-stemming

The grapes are separated from the stems, and the stems are kicked out

The bins are processed one by one

While Katie cleans up the machine, Milum moves on to the next step- He pumps out the juice before the grapes are crushed

The morning started early, very early- before the sunrise.

There were lots of grapes, Pinot to be exact, to be harvested.

The team at Mellisoni and their cheerful volunteers filled buckets and buckets full of grapes. That went down the hill, and filled the bins. Then these little grapes were off to Tildio for processing. See the next blog post for the next steps for these little grapes on their great journey thru Crush!

Tunnel Hill Crush Events | Vineyard Tour Winemakers Dinner with Cafe Manson | Chelan, WA

22 October 2011
Published in Commercial
I had the very special treat to join Tunnel Hill Winery for one of their 2011 Crush Events. Friday they had a vineyard tour followed by an inaugural winemakers dinner in their new production facility provided by Cafe Manson. And they even christened the space with a good old fashioned wine breaking.

I learned a lot listening to Guy talk about their history in the valley, and about all the different aspects that Tunnel Hill does for farming- from flowers to animals to veggies to wine!
