Long Island Community-Made Update: The Pressing

Yesterday afternoon, several members of the LENNDEVOURS community winemaking project descended up on Sannino’s Bella Vita Vineyard to press the juice from the grapes we harvest a couple weeks ago. I was upstate, so couldn’t attend, but one member took several photos and posted them. I’ve heard through the grape vine (awful pun, no?) that there are several different types of oak barrel in play as well as a couple different yeast strains. We’re going to have a lot of options (and fun) when it comes time to blend our wine I think.

Harvest at Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard

Saturday morning, several of you (my readers) descended upon Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard on Saturday morning to harvest cabernet sauvignon for our community-made Long Island red blend. I was unable to make it because I was in the Hudson Valley visiting good friends, picking apples and stopping at Alison Winery in Red Hook. From what I’ve heard and from the pictures I’ve seen, a good time was had by all. We’ll be pressing the cab on the 28th. This is going to be fun.
