Stay up to date with what we are working on, talking about and exploring. From grapes, wine, travel and fun!
We were only notified that day and we couldn't find help on such short notice. Thus only Gary and I delt with the 3 tons. My but we were tired at the end of the day. We will press the Syrah tomorrow but this time 2 of our staff will be able to help. Thank gookness for friends and great staff.
Here is our son Tony enjoying some of the product. As you can see, this job is not all work.
We got back from our family sailing trip ready to get into action. Lucky for us, the Syrah flavors had not developed yet. We have a week at least to get better prepared, get the stemmer/crusher ready, put up the canopies to keep the sun off of us and the grapes and read the precedures we have been doing for the last 15 years with some lessons learned. Even after all this time we keep trying to streamline the process and it is amazing what you can forget in a year.
