Hello everyone. My name is Mackenzie and I am an intern here at Fox Run Vineyards. I am currently a sophomore at Finger Lakes Community College in the Viticulture and Wine Technology program. This past summer I worked in the vineyards here at Fox Run learning how to manage and take care of vines. The experience was great, but I have come to find that being a vineyard manager is not the career for me. I’m currently working in the winery, helping out with the everyday tasks. So far I have really enjoyed my experience and have learned many new things that I can take back and use in my Enology class.
Today is a pretty quiet day. This morning I coated two barrels in a seal called Barrel Guard. This makes them water resistant and also preserves their appearance. Currently Kelby and I are transferring 2009 Lemberger out of a Flex tank into a stainless steel tank. The reason for doing this is so we can have a bigger blend. Next we are going to spray ball the Flex tank and put some 2010 Pinot Noir in to age.
