Summertime

pollyHauser Estate Blog, Vineyard

Tasting RoomSummertime is not technically here yet, but most local schools are out and the tourists have swarmed into Gettysburg.  Summer brings so much fun to our winery.  Music, festivals, and lots of special events keep us busy upstairs, but below our building and out in the fields, there is a lot going on!

Our production facility sits below our tasting room built into a hill.  Most do not realize that they are standing on top of a thriving industry below.

Before the grapes get crushed or go into the tank or barrel, before the wine is bottled, and before it can be enjoyed up in the tasting room.  We work hard in the vineyard to get the best grapes possible.  This is where wine comes from and to get a great wine, there needs to be great grapes.

The last two weeks have been spent shoot thinning and shoot positioning.  Our baby grapes are growing!
