Pontotoc Vineyard held its annual grape harvest on August 6th and 7th. The vineyard is located in Pontotoc, which coincidentally means “grapes on the vine.” It was a particularily exciting harvest for Pontotoc Vineyard as this is the first year they will make wine rather than sell their tempranillo grapes. The winery, housed in one of the community’s historic sandstone buildings, is fully operational and will likely produce 500 cases of Spanish style wineunder the guidance of winemaker, Don Pullam, and capable hands of vineyard manager, Ronnie Money. The owners, Carl and Frances Money, are in the process of converting the community’s oldest sandstone building into the tasting room and anticipate opening for business in late 2012 or early 2013.
