Buy, Sell & Trade: Apricot wine and peach champagne timeline update
A message from Good Libations
Just thought I'd let you know how the apricot wine and peach champagne are coming along. The one-word answer is "slowly." Our very dry summer, which was also the case in the Okanagan, really delayed the maturing of the tree fruits (and probably most crops). The apricots and peaches both arrived much later than usual -- the peaches were a month later. We're also discovering that the wines are taking much longer to clear. Our taste tests confirm that the quality is not compromised at all so it will definitely be worth the wait. The apricot wine will probably be ready near the end of this month and the peach champagne maybe as late as mid-December (certainly in time for the holiday season).
Thank you for your patience.
