Good Evening:
     Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, by gosh it is already Friday night, time flies in retirement.  I do have some news to start with that many have been waiting to hear.  The wine label Gemutlichkeit is bottled and on the shelves.  This is the wine made from the grape Prairie Star and drinks like a moscato:  Hints of apple, mango, pineapple, and melon come through. Serve chilled.  Last year this was a new label, until it sold out it was our second fastest seller.  This is a very nice summer wine to drink on a hot sunny day at the beach or at home.
     Last week's trivia question:   "W e made a new record on our bottling speed.   Here is the question, with 7 - 8 people working for a four hour time
period, filling bottles, corking, label, and shrink wrap and back into cases and onto pallets.  With our current system we are handling each and every bottle.  How many bottles per hour did we average?  Our old record was 667 bottles per hour.  The totally automated bottling lines start at 750 bottles per hour."
The correct answer is 696 bottles per hour for 4 hours, that's a total of 2,784 bottles.  The winner of a bottle of wine is
Karen Aske, below is her comment and question:
"Congratulations on your speedy efficient work, my guess is 695 bottles per hour.

"Bottle of wine, fruit of the vine...when you gonna let me get sober" ....who recorded that song?"
Not often do I get a trivia question back, my answer is  "The Fireballs."

  Are the siblings in your family competitive?  Recently Jon, our
middle son the winemaker, and Scott, our youngest who also works at the winery, got into a little spicy chicken eating contest at Buffalo Wild Wings. Their challenge was to eat a dozen wings doused with extra hot ring of fire sauce in six minutes.  By the end Jon's mustache was curled  more than normal.  Scott was I think content to loose.  I was invited also, but I know better than to gobble down hot and spicy stuff.  Clips of their video below.
What a messy job.

     Do you recognize this bag? If you bought a case of wine at Millner Heritage Winery in approx. the last two years, you received a bag like this.
     As you probably already know this bag always gives you case discount on just buying at least 6 bottles, forever.
     This bag is also the entry ticket for two guests for our case club up-coming appreciation party. Don't have a bag? Buy a full case, 12 bottles, at the party and we'll still include you for the party.

        We do require that each couple at least fill their bottle bag with six bottles to take home, priced at case discount. That's just 3 bottles per person of your favorite wines. 

Seating is limited and RSVP required.
To reserve call Don Millner at 320-237-1958 or email to with the subject line "Free". Include your phone number and number of guests. I will return call to finalize.

Remember, you have to bring your 6-pack bag along to the event to enter. If you have more than one bag, bring another couple. Again remember, don't forget your bottle bag and advanced reservations required. This date is open to everyone with a 6-pack bag regardless of previous parties attended.
