Happy 4th of July from Applewood Winery

Michele and Jonathan are excited about their vineyard. This spring they decided to farm all their own grapes organically. This means that no synthetic chemicals are used in the production of the grapes. As you know however, we just had one of the wettest June’s on record. This means that there has been incredible disease pressure on the grapes. But despite all this the organic methods have been working well for us. It’s a lot more work requiring much more attention. So we see all this soggy weather as having a silver lining. It’s shown us that organic grape growing is viable here in the Hudson Valley.
