For my patient readers… I bet you wonder what I have been up to since harvest ended in early December. Well, honestly I did do that whole ‘holidays’ thing, but right after that was over I am right back in the game! Topping barrels, moving them around (or should I say organizing), and spending lots of money. Writing checks is a big part of being a winemaker. I have been writing checks for three years now and have all these amazing barrels of wine to taste through… wow, what fun!
I recently wrote checks for my bottles. That was a nice one. As some know my bottles are big, heavy and going to be screenprinted with 22k gold for the label. I know, spare no expense! Well, I believe that my wine should be housed in an equal vessel compared to what is on the inside of the bottle. Do you agree?
Next up is the cork order. I am trying to think of some clever print to put on the cork itself. A treat if you will for the consumer. Yes, more than just my phone number… who wants that anyways?
So, still working, still having fun, and still very, very excited.
