La la la la la, mon cheri amour… Sorry for that Stevie Wonder moment, but that’s what I hear every time I take a sip of our Mon Cheri. It’s a light, semi-sweet wine made with New York Diamond grapes. It’s the July Wine of the Month, so stop Â in and get yourself a couple of bottles — buy one, get one half off!

Get up extra early on Tuesday, July 17 to see Andy and Christina talk about Lakeland Winery on WSTM’s (NBC) early morning news show. It’s at 6:30 a.m., so set your alarm!
I will be at Stans Blueberry Patch on Wednesday July 11, 2012 at 8AM to pick some of NYS best blueberries. Please join me for a sunny day with temperatures beginning at 55 degrees and going as high as 84 degrees. You can keep your own blueberries or I will pay you a bottle of blueberry wine (made from this years communal batch) per hour of blueberry picking. You may also pick blueberries that would be acceptable from Hafners Blueberry Patch on Route 370 in Baldwinsville and Matt & Annie’s Blueberry Patch in Parish. No other blueberries are acceptable for making wine at Lakeland Winery. I have tasted these berries and found them to be exceptional tasting. There may be other good patches I haven’t tasted, but so far these are the three. Blueberry picking will continue daily until I have 800 pounds. That, and 500 pounds of sugar make 250 gallons of delicious tasting blueberry wine.
