There’s anticipation while we wait. Excitement and celebration when the day arrives. Warmth, joy and common purpose as our family, farm workers and friends all pick together.
There’s appreciation for the freshness and quality of an unblemished crop. Urgency and focus as we get the grapes straight to the press while they’re cool. There’s relief once pressing begins.
Exhilaration after a job well done. There’s gratitude for blessings of abundance. Hope for delicious wines. And, finally, patience while we wait.
