Family Reunion


Two weekends ago we had an open house at our winery. Two of my sisters, Cali and Bella, and one of my brothers, Bishop, attended. Here we are running through the vineyard.

Horsing around


This is Topper and me. She is our racehorse that runs at all the California race tracks. Jim has created a track for her right through the vineyard where he exercises her everyday. You can see it through the tasting room windows.

When harvest ends the real work begins


I found out that harvest isn't just fun and games out in the vineyards. Every day we've had to stay at the winery and process the grapes that were picked. Sometimes this went on till late at night. Even after the grapes were processed we had to pump over then press them later on. The work continues and I think I overheard Susan say that we will finish sometime in December. It's starting to get cold at night, I would rather be on the couch at home with a blazing fire going.
