Gewurztraminer is in short supply for 2006
Gewurztraminer is in short supply for 2006. This year we only harvested 11.19 tons that will make approximately 541 cases of wine. We harvested this variety on October 2nd. This wine is normally released just prior to Thanksgiving on the year of harvest.
Last year we harvested 24.65 tons on September 19th that made 1,192 cases of wine.
This represents a 55% decline for this years harvest.
