So, the latest with the Chateau is that we’re in the process of tearing down the old farm house (zoning issue) and using some of the wood from the old house in the Chateau. Lots of work, but well worth it.
Next year (2019) we start wine production again with our own grapes, and will have wine to sell once more. Elderberries had a good year this year (2018) and should yield a small quantity of wine for a 2018 vintage.
We’re thinking a blues festival next year featuring Stacy Mitchhart and his band next summer (http://www.stacymitchhart.com/). Stay tuned for details.
More later! In vino veritas!
