We are halfway through October and almost done with harvest, just the Petit Verdot left. All the whites have now been crushed and are fermenting in stainless for new wines next year. The reds are fermenting and will be crushed next week.

July 24 · Last night we brought three generations of our family, and all thoroughly enjoyed the wine, music, company and ambiance ! Wendy, Ed and their daughter have created an amazing space! The music by Wildflower was a perfect touch. We can't wait for round two!

Ed and Wendy were very hospitable and kind. My wife and I had done the tasting and had a glass of wine overlooking their vineyard. Wish we lived closer. Definitely recommend stopping by.

What a great place. The tasting room is fantastic.... lots of Windows with great views from the 1st & 2nd floors :-)
So many exciting events during this month, which is WINE MONTH in Virginia. Two of the events I'm especially excited about, are LIBATION AND ILLUMINATION, Bobbie Wilinski of Bobbie's Barn makes sensational lights out of funky objects and our Blue Grass and Barbecue, celebrating our harvest time.
Brix is the sugar content in the grapes. We want the brix content in the grapes to go up to 21, hopefully 23-24. As the grapes go through fermentation it turns into alcohol, so the brix level is directly related to alcohol content.
I'd like to share what's happening at Third Hill Winery. First, we've started harvesting and crushing. Reisling is the only varietal we have harvested so far, but we have crushed both the Traminette and Chardonal sourced from our friends and fellow wine growers.
Hi all, Labor Day is fast approaching. What wine do you bring to a barbecue you've been invited to? May I suggest our Rose` wine, it'll pair with just about anything. Grilled Salmon, seared tuna, barbecued chicken, even a nice juicy burger!
What to serve for Labor Day
Are you hosting a cook out for Labor Day? You can serve this very chill Frose to your guests. It'll pair with anything and it's delicious! Make with Third Hill's Rose` wine. You will be the hit of the party.
