2015 Heritage Apple

December 3, 2017

We have just released our 2016 Heritage Apple. Small batch of mixed heirloom apples and Ortega grapes. Our apples were hand-cut, hand-macerated and pressed into stainless and blended with Ortega. This fun, unique blend is a dry aromatic wine with beautiful notes of ripe apples and honey.
Available in the tasting room only. This cider style wine makes the perfect Christmas gift, and the label is too cute.

Harvest 2017

November 9, 2017
And just like that Harvest 2017 has finished. It was a hectic spring, summer and fall, with a few mishaps along the way, but it is such a relief to have the crop picked. We get to sleep in a little bit later now, but its also a busy time in the cellar with the fermentations finishing up, its now racking racking and more racking. We still have ¼ of the vineyard netting to take down, and in time it will happen. Christmas is around the corner again, another busy time of the year with events, bottling and new wine releases. We are 2 weeks out from the release of our Heritage. The heritage is a blend of Ortega Wine, and Apples . We called this heritage, as its made with a variety of heirloom apples from our orchard block. The trees there are well over 100 years old. The perfect late fall wine.
A favorite is the Blackberry wine, and we release this around the same time every year. 2 weeks before Christmas! The blackberry makes a great gift or stocking stuffer, and it doesnt last long. Best to get your name on the list fast.
Stay tuned for our releases and whats happening…. we post a lot of our stuff on Instagram. @millstonewinery
