A View from the Cellar #7

Working with Snow Covered Tanks
Greetings from the Cellar! 
….okay, fine.  This isn’t a photo from today.  But as many of you likely know all too well, the weather today is less than ideal in the Finger Lakes.  While flurries aren’t uncommon in May around here, that fact doesn’t exactly make us feel warm and fuzzy.
Snow is part of life for a Finger Lakes winery, however, and the work of winemaking continues all year round.  That means wearing plenty of layers when moving a wine outside, and having a plan for what to do if you find the tank iced up.
