What’s Going on in the Vineyard? Shoot Positioning!
What’s going on in the vineyards you ask? The answer this week is “Shoot Positioning”. If you read our last blog post, you know that the season got started early with an early bud-break. This means that the vines pushed their buds and shoots started growing. These shoots are now growing in all directions. So, to […]
What’s going on in the vineyard:
Bud-Break and Shoot Thinning Our vineyards are now full of life after their short and warm winter slumber. This year bud-break, which is considered the start of the growing season has come between 10 and 14 days early due to a warm winter. We have hardly seen frost on the ground which is rare for […]
One of our goals with Muddy Boot is to highlight the farmer and all of the hard work that goes into producing high quality wine grapes. Why would we do this?

Muddy Boot Wine: Our First Sale!
After a long day of labeling our Muddy Boot Red Blend the fun way, Tom, David and I sat down at Streets of London, one of our local hangouts to talk sales and marketing for this new wine label. As we were putting together our sales sheets and updating our Facebook page, we had a great […]
Labeling…The Fun Way
So, typically, labeling happens when you bottle wine. Wine goes through a big bottling line, and then labels (in the form of big stickers) are placed perfectly on the bottle. But where’s the fun with that! (Read: We didn’t have our labels completed in time, DOH!) Today we had the pleasure of hand labeling our 2012 Red […]
