What's Happening At Massbach Ridge Winery

Retro pricing!

Retro pricing! When I opened the doors 10 years ago, there were 4 wines: Apple, Traumen, Sunrise Red and St. Pepin. Those wines will have the original prices on them for the weekend. WooHoo!

IL GRAPE GROWER OF THE YEAR

This may have my name on it but it is thanks to so many people who have helped Greg and I: Travis, Megan, the Moms, Nicole and many other family members, those who have passed on and so many who have helped with harvest. Thank you and Congratulations to you!

Dear Friends,

10 YEARS!?!?
For 10 years, we have been growing and making wine. I would like to thank you for your support. I have enjoyed seeing so many people enjoy our wines but more than that – I have enjoyed seeing people enjoy a very important part of life – each other!

So, I would like to invite you to celebrate with us on the 15th. We will have some of my favorites things: Wine, Music and Food!

Mike Kelly will be setting the mood with great music while you enjoy a glass of Hot Red Storm in our new 10th Anniversary glass. But, don’t forget to pick up a few bottles of commemorative St. Pepin bottles all dressed up for the occasion.

We look forward to seeing you and look forward to many more “Vintage” years!

Cheers,
Peggy
Winemaker

10th Anniversary

2-months worth of celebrating and toasting 10 years will start tomorrow with music from Mike Kelly. Also, a special Daffodil and Velvet Hour tasting for those that brave the cold and come to Massbach Saturday.
Watch for specials and Events for the next couple months.

Happy Thanksgiving! and Traumen is Back!

If you don’t want to fight the crowds this weekend, you know you can always find parking and a friendly smile in Massbach.

I believe this time of year is about appreciating and spending time with those we treasure; family and friends. The biggest part of our happiness in life is our relationship with others. That’s where we fit in.

Coming out to Massbach, you and your loved ones enjoy our friendly atmosphere, enjoy the scenic views God has painted, and enjoy this local product.

Massbach Ridge will soon to be open for 10 years. I’ve been asking myself, “What is our purpose? Why do we make wine?” The answer is simple – For YOU – To see you enjoy time with each other and appreciate the beautiful things in life.

Also, I have a theory that a glass of wine makes everyone a little more loveable. 🙂

Love and Cheers,
Peggy

Federweiss: German term for Young Wine

Before wine is finished fermenting, the bubbles and natural sweetness from the remaining juice makes a lovely beverage. Burcek is the Czech term.
I prefer the whites (St. Pepin and Vignoles) but the light reds are enjoyable too. Our wines are done fermenting but I will be sure to let you know next year when you catch this unique drink.

Wonderful, Eventful time of Year!

Fermentation is in the air. Working with the new wines is always exciting. St. Pepin will be fermenting with a few hours; Foch is done; Frontenac to be harvested next weekend. Vignoles is ripening quick with this heat!
Getting excited for Vintage IL and Stomp on the 28th!

What a Great Weekend!

Thank you to all that visited the tasting rooms this weekend! It was great to see you.
Out at the vineyard, we covered a lot of ground through the Foch. We are going to pick some more Foch Wed and Thurs morning.
