Good Morning:     10:00 am
     I have more cider news, last Monday Jon bottled two pallets of Minnesota Crisp hard cider in the 22 ounce bottles.  Yesterday he showed me that one pallet is already gone to the wholesale market, but don't fear we still have a pallet at the winery and next week he bottles another 500 gallons.  We announced the return of MN Crisp on Facebook and the response has been exceptional.
     Given this on my mind I awoke this morning with a panic dream.  I dreamt that every bottle of wine at the winery was gone.  I just couldn't find a single bottle of wine, imagine that, good think I woke up.
     Also this week Andrea, our newest worker, entered in 78 new emails for this news letter.  Welcome to the new readers and don't miss the two events below.
          For this Saturday's Vineathon Jon received the pumpkins yesterday. T he weather forecast is good, this is a run, walk, crawl event through the vineyard with or without wine.  Should be a nice day and a good fund raiser for the breaking free organization.
     Also if it is you're first time reading this letter, don't miss the St. Martin's Day Customer Appreciation Party, November 7th.  This is a free event as a case club member.  See the details below.
   Upcoming Events:
     For the Spooky Vineathon the weather forecast is good.

My How Time
     Yesterday I realized that this fall we are now 10 years working on the winery project.  I was a young 53 yr. old at that time and Mary was even younger.  Jon and Anna were closer to kids and Iza wasn't.  I think this is worth celebrating.
Looking for a photo to put here, I googled Millner Heritage Winery Photos and got quite a response of a blend of pictures from over the years.  If you'd like to see some of them click  HERE .

Nothing like a cold MN Crisp.
