May has shown up in all its glory. Flowers blossoming around every yard and...dandelions. Dandelions aplenty.

Known as the bain of many a lawn-perfectionists existence, these flowers are now known to provide important spring nourishment for our Bees! Don't poison them!

If your not using pesticides, but doing the work of uprooting and composting them, you might as well go that one step further and create some yummy wine for winter!

It's going to take a bit of work on your part. This is where young children and grand kids can be a big help-They are, after all, closer to the ground.  Also, they should be encouraged to earn their keep...

Enjoy the glorious sunny days!

Now That The Warmer Weather Is Here...

It is a great time for this reminder..

Do Not Cook Your Wine!!

When you come into the store to bottle your wine, try and make sure it is the last thing you are doing in town before heading home. 

**We cannot store your bottled wine in store-that is illegal. No compromising, sorry.

If you leave your wine in a hot car, the corks will blow out and even the bottles that remain corked- will be what they call cooked. The flavour and aroma will be forever altered, and never for the better, my friend. You will have yourself two and a half cases of marinade for your summer steaks,.(if red wine, at any rate.)

Coolers and or ice packs can get you through if you really must spend a few hours in town after bottling.

Cheers!

In Store now....
