Rhubarb Harvest is Close
Tuesday will be the start of Maple River Winery's 2012 Rhubarb Harvest Campaign. This year, our goal is to bring in 100,000 pounds of North Dakota Rhubarb. If my math is correct, that would be 50 tons of rhubarb. We need a lot of rhubarb for our Rhubarb Wine, Strawberry Rhubarb Wine, Rhubarb Cordial and Rhubarb Vodka. When we started 11 years ago, if someone would say to me that we would purchase 100,000 pounds of rhubarb, I would have laughed. Well, you make a great product, people enjoy it, they come back for more. We have the best customers in the world. On behalf of the crew at Maple River Winery and Maple River Distillery, thank you for your purchases. We appreciate your business. Now time to get busy with rhubarb!
