The Miracle of Life

I haven't written any blogs this week because we lost our beloved winery dog, Cassie, this past week-end. Tim, Emma and I will continue to grieve the loss of this fine companion but also realize there is much to celebrate in life.

We have finished bottling our 2007 Estate Syrah and Tempranillo. This has brought me such feelings of pride and joy. It is hard to explain but to put plants into the ground, nurture them, turn out fruit and see the finished wine product is simply an awesome feeling. It makes me think of all the farmers who bring us our food and clothes and what a huge debt we own them. They toil day in and day out to bring us the miracle of life. Have you thanked a farmer today?
