Coming this Summer...
We thought some of our followers and customers of Silver Leaf Vineyard & Winery might be interested in learning about wine barrels and how the type and age of the barrel affect the taste of the wine. We've put some information together to give our patrons a better understanding of what takes place while using oak for aging our wines.
This summer we will be conducting barrel tastings on our crush pad outside the winery, where we will be discussing in-depth the fermentation process, the use of yeast, racking, oak aging, both French and American and the bottling process. The current plan is to serve cheese and wine during these discussions. We hope you'll join us!
*Special thank you to our friends at Lake Effect Cooperage for help redoing our wine barrels.
