Which means, very little oaking, no added tannins, very discrete fining,and the purest of yeasts. Of course,we will occasionally take a flight of fancy and ferment a Honeysuckle or a Banana-chocolate-caramel wine for the novelty of it. We love to discuss wine making techniques with our guests at the tasting room and showcase our unique products.
