As Summer draws to an end, Fall harvest and production are in full swing. The addition of the Gregoir Harvester, a.k.a. "the Grape-O-Nator", in 2015 cut harvest time in half and allows the Winery production team more time to create the wine selections you have come to know and love. The production process includes harvesting, crushing and pressing, maceration, fermentation, clarification, aging and bottling.
The 2016 Summer weather conditions were hot and dry! Drought conditions pushed many vineyards to their breaking point. Thousand Islands Winery®, with the knowledge and skills set of its amazing production team, was able to not only survive the drought but, produce a healthy and bountiful harvest this year. With the recent growth is sales, the Winery can waste not one moment to meet the growing needs of its ever expanding customer base.
