Hello again! Now that I have my own blog and a birds-eye view (get it?!) of everything going on at Defiance Ridge, I'll be sharing what I see and hear with you!
Wow... I already have some scoop for you! I just got word that we're going to be harvesting our Vignoles grapes on Monday, August 20th and you're invited to join in!! I think you'll have a lot of fun being a part of our first Harvest Boot Camp (it's not as hard as it sounds!) Check out our website for more details on what it's all about.
You'll also be working alongside one of my favorite people, Tom "Murph" Murphy. Not only is he our vineyard manager and winemaker, he feeds me everyday! Needless to say, we've become fast friends. You may not know it, but, I'm highly intelligent and remember who has been kind to me (or not!) When I see him coming towards the lake with my gourmet meal of mixed grains, I know I'm also going to get some first-hand vineyard news.
Wish I could join you in the vineyard for our first harvest but at least I can report about all the fun I missed from my very reliable source!
