Blogging

December 15, 2017 I started this weekly (most of the time) post on a Friday this past March.  It had been something I had wanted to do.  To share what it is like to live a life that is a bit different.  We deal with Mother Nature, the vineyard, making wine and selling wine. And yes, we have a wonderful space for weddings and parties. There are so many other “jobs” we have here that are not on a job description. There are so many ways to run a business…. Read More

Wine Club

Many wineries start a wine club.

A group of us recently traveled to Bordeaux, France to head out on… Read More

Fresh from the Garden

October 20, 2017 It is that time of year, cool mornings and evenings and nice sunny afternoons.  When Pearl and I arrived today we were walking around the remnants of my summer garden, amongst the weeds and morning glories.  I thought maybe I would find a tomato or a pepper, but I was pleasantly surprised!  My arms were full of tomatoes, peppers and eggplant!  These are the pleasures of a garden, especially this time of the year.  I think a Ratatouille will be the perfect side dish to go along… Read More
