- Find out what it was like. Here is what one person said: "The mood of the event was similar to a casual party, which made everyone feel comfortable and as a result some people stayed for the whole event and enjoyed themselves. "
- Read the article Toni wrote about the market. She was so impressed about getting to try fresh spinach from the Black Cat Farm and taste some local wine. http://www.boulderlocavore.com/2011/11/bookcliff-vineyards-and-black-cat.html
- Check out our events page at www.bookcliffvineyards.com/events to see whether there is another opportunity for you to experience the Good Life Holiday market.
We may do this again on December 18th, so people who missed it get another chance and for people who ate all the cheese. pork, ducks, vegetables and pies to come and restock for the holiday meal.
See you then.

2011 is the first year BookCliff Vineyards participates in the Longmont Farmers Market. What a welcome we received. I did not expect that we would find so many loyal customers who come back week after week. One reason may be is that we offer tastes at the Longmont Farmers Market. All our wines are open for tasting (12 total) and sometimes we taste the dessert wines as well. The Longmont Farmers Market has grown quite a bit; 14 new vendors were added in 2011. The food court is in the center and live music can be found all around the market. Come and see us, if you are in the neighborhood.

-By Ulla Merz
At the Boulder Farmers Market we frequently get asked whether our wines are organic. Most of the time I respond with a quick No, as the answer is quite complex and would take some time to explain.
To receive the USDA organic certification, wine has to be made from organically grown grapes and the addition of sulfites is not allowed.
For John and me it was always important to get a grape crop every year and to be a good steward of the land at the same time. Right from the beginning we did not use herbicide and instead bought a grape hoe for in row weeding. We also do not use pesticide. We do use sulfur, which is considered organic, to spray for powdery mildew and if temperatures reach above 90 degree Fahrenheit we use a chemical as sulfur burns the leaves and leaves are needed to ripen the grapes. 2011 is the third year we have made our own compost from apple pulp, wood chips and chicken manure, which now replaces the chemical fertilizer we used before. At this point we have no plans to become USDA organically certified.
When it comes to wine making we will continue to use sulfites as a preservative to keep our wines from oxidizing and grow bacteria that negatively affect the flavor. Personally, I think it is fun to enjoy a 15 or 20 year old bottle of wine. Winemakers, us included, also use fining agents, which either precipitate out or are removed by filtering the wine. Some of the options for fining are egg whites, casein (milk protein), gelatin, isinglass (derived from fish) and bentonite clay. Whether to use any fining agents is a preference in the style of wine, just as different people are looking for different flavors in the wine.
If the grape growing and wine making practices used to make the wine are important to you, I suggest to ask the source, which is easy and another benefit when buying local.For further reading here is a link to an article recently published in the LA times, that talks about the complexity of organic labelling and wine.
