In the middle of hand-labeling bottles of his new dessert wine, Court Ruppenthal enjoys a few sips of his "Winter Warmer" beer from the other side of his production facility at Laht Neppur. After making beer for many years and selling it at his facility in Waitsburg for more than two-years, Ruppenthal is releasing his first wines this weekend as part of winter barrel tasting.
