and a sparkling pool,

the bottling of fine wine:

pumped

filtered

to vat

to be siphoned into bottles

-with a time out to restore the siphon-

corked

and boxed.

This year’s production…a careful blend of four varieties

Amazing family, friends, and food + grapes crushed, blended, aged to perfection

all working together = a job well done and fine wine at the end of the day!

So grateful to have been part of the equation!!!
