An update from Vynecrest Winery

Here's the latest from Vynecrest in Breinigsville, as borrowed from their newest e-newsletter.

New Releases - The 2009 Pinot Noir and Riesling where released this week.

In the Vineyard - Lemberger 6/24/10
2010 continues to be a great year in the vineyard. The weather seems to be cooperating this far.
Currently, we are pulling some leaves from around the grape clusters. This exposes the clusters to sunlight and increases the airflow around the grapes. Next, we will go through and remove some of the grape clusters. This will allow the remaining clusters to ripen properly. We will also hedge the top of the vines that have grown a little too much.

Competition Results - The results for the 2010 San Francisco International Wine Competition are in and Vynecrest received three medals:
  • 2009 Chardonnay - Silver Medal
  • 2009 Dry Riesling - Silver Medal
