News and Updates
February 7th, 2020 –
We open back up tonight after our time off. Can’t wait to see everyone. We have a lot in the works for this summer and beyond!
A lot of events added for the year so far. We are planning a VERY fun Halloween party for this year, so be prepared if you think you can handle it!
We are almost ready to start getting 2019 harvest bottled, so everyone missing Bumblebee’s Delight will be happy to know we will have more soon – it is very close to last years! Also, one more new specialty wine to look forward to as well.

Harvest is almost finished! Hope to have the last variety out over the weekend.
We finally have the labels finished for our new “Dark Secret” wine.. some chocolate infused goodness to be released sometime in the near future – still waiting on fed and state approvals, then off to the printer – so keep watching for it!
As a forewarning to any of the 2018 Bumblebee’s Delight lovers… we are already down to 98 bottles as of today so make sure to get your fill before they sell out.

For any harvest interest, this weekend we will begin putting nets on..so harvest should begin in about 2 or 3 weeks. It’s not too late to sign up as volunteer pickers, there will be several weekends we could use help picking!

Looking for volunteers to help pick! We have donuts for breakfast, a big lunch, water to keep you hydrated and a lot of conversation for anyone interested. Stay for the long haul and take a bottle of your favorite wine home with you..if you are 21 or older of course! Older kids are more than welcome to come and help, please keep in mind it is a lot of walking.
If interested please send your phone number or email address via a message on facebook or the contact form on this page. We will send a group text and email out when a variety is ready to pick (we try to hold off until weekends if possible). Picking starts around 8:30am and goes until the variety is picked, which varies depending on how many volunteers are there to help.
We really appreciate anyone that can help! Even if not the entire day. Please call, email or message with any questions.

A few website updates. Events listed for quick views and new event page for specific details.
Pruning still in progress. We are getting there! We removed all the muscat grapevines because they did not grow well for us. A brand new variety will be arriving to be planted in their place within a couple of weeks.

Pruning season has finally begun! Getting a very late start this year because of all the snow so we have some long, hard days ahead of us to get them all cut before they start growing. Wish us luck!
Several new events added, check them out and put them in your calendars!
New labels approved for the 2018 harvest. Off to the printing company so we can finally get our biggest harvest to date in the bottle, can’t wait to release them!
