Two things:

First, it looks like Louis will be in town mid-June for bottling and final blending.  We will be bottling at Hector Wine Co. on the 12th of June so if your in the neighborhood drop by.  Second, while Louis is here we are looking at putting together a special tasting of Chateau St. Cosme wines AND a sneak peak tasting of the 2011 Forge Riesling.  Chances are pretty good that this will take place at Red Feet Wine Market in Ithaca.  When I get final dates and times I will pass them along.

One more thing – last Sunday we had our 1st growers appreciation tasting at Hector Wine Co.  It was a chance to taste all of the different vineyards before we do the blend and it was a great opportunity for the growers to exchange insight.   I will have more to report about the tasting shortly, I’m waiting on some more pictures.
