Vineyard Update

This years harvest was challenging, however the vintage still looks promising! All of the grapes have been harvest and pressed off and are currently being fermented and filtered. 

The remaining grapes that are still hanging on the vines are reserved for the production of our Ice Wine!!!   The ice wine grapes hang until late December or early January. We are waiting until we receive at least 3 consecutive days of 17 degrees Fahrenheit or below temperatures.  This is crucial to the ice wine making process.

Note: Generally, grapes contain a higher amount of water than sugars, so once the temperature drops below freezing point the water in the grapes becomes frozen.  This allows the sugar to become concentrated and when pressed is pure flavor and natural sugars.  The amount an ice wine grape gives off is approximately 1/5 of the juice you would normally maintain from an unfrozen grape.  

Be sure to join us at Ferrante Winery and the other wineries of the Grand River Valley come March for the Ice Wine Festival!!!
