We are working on several new varieties, please stop by and give us your opinion.  Although the new varieties are not for sale, we like to have customers try them to let us know if they are worth pursuing.

The amount and varieties of wine, however, depend on the year and the availability of fruit. Any one year may see some fruits being more plentiful than others.
