The Concord vines were so lovely in 2020. But wait.......Something is missing! Yes, unfortunately almost all the grapes in Wise were lost due to three nights of 28-degree weather in May 2020. Sadly we had no 2020 Grape U-pick, just salt to the wound of that year!
Check out this seeder David made for the 1000s of cabbage and broccoli plants we are growing! We are growing more green grapevines this year, mostly for us, but some for other folks as well. As a result, we have opened up another greenhouse.
The sap of our maple trees looks and tastes like water with a hint of sweetness. This sap only flows in late winter. The ideal weather has nights in the 20s and days warming up to the 40s.
MountainRose Vineyards is thankful for a very good year!
Our crop of 2019 is in! WOW! We processed our biggest harvest ever, more than 25 tons of grapes with desirable sugar levels and almost perfect numbers.
Championed by American Express, the first “Small Business Saturday” (or SBS) took place on November 27th, 2010. The U.S. Congress officially recognized the day in 2011 and in 2012, the Town of Wise joined the campaign for the first time, along with all 50 states!
It is the day we pick! How do we know what day is best? You want your grapes to be rich in color. A ripe grape will crush easily, but not be shriveled. A ripe grape is plump, and thickly juicy and tastes somewhat sweet and tart. The crushed grape should smell and taste ripe!
MountainRose Vineyard’s Riesling recently won Gold at the 2019 Virginia State Fair. This rounds out medal achievements for Riesling, having also won Silver and Bronze in Virginia Governor’s Cup competitions over the years.
Sunday, July 21th, MountainRose Vineyards will celebrate 15 years of harvest with “A Day in the Country”!
MountainRose has partnered with Dickenson County and the town of St. Paul to celebrate 50 Days of Love. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Virginia Tourism Corporation slogan “Virginia is for Lovers” and there are celebrations going on everywhere in Virginia.
