Harvesting Frontenac Grapes at Glacial Till

On our second trip out to Glacial Till to help with harvesting Frontenac grapes, we brought more help.  My brother, son and son-in-law joined us and we had a great morning out in the vineyard.  After picking grapes, we enjoyed breakfast, courtesy of the owners family, and some great conversation.  This time we also got a personal tour of the building and once again were sent home with lots of wine!  They will do one more picking in a couple of weeks and Mike and I will probably join them again.

we had a personal wine tasting before choosing what wines we wanted to take home!
