It is getting cold

It is December and winter broke out like on a schedule. Considering the long and warm autumn where some of the trees have not even shed all their leaves yet, this was quite sudden. Last night it reached temperatures of -7° C, cold enough for producing Icewine. We did not plan to harvest Icewine this year but for some other winemaking families of Gols this day of work started early during night hours already. Early December is just perfect timing because there is enough time for processing and fermentation until Christmas.

Thinking about Christmas, we are also looking forward to a few days off. But there is a lot of work to be done before that. The vintage’s wines are either well accomodated in our cellar or even already bottled as it is the case for some of our “Young Wines”. Until the holiday season begins, we have a bit of time to deliver wines to our customers. Mid December we’ll be in Tirol and Vorarlberg for the last time this year. We’re looking forward to bringing the christmas wines personally to you. Please order until next week so that this can be possible. If you can’t order in time for any reason or the delivery needs to be especially quick there is always the possibilty for a parcel shipment too of course!
