1. No wine should ever be offered too young!

2. Processed juice will never be as good as grapes fresh from the vineyard, no matter what you do or how you process it!

3.  Great Wines start with great grapes. 

4. All our grapes are Estate Grown

 5. Life can be bland.  Our wine isn’t!

6.  A glass of wine should look inviting and enticing – not dull!

7. There are no recipes for making wine!  Outcome is dictated by Mother Nature and the skill of  the winemaker!     

8.  Making fine wine is an art form.

9. Wine should you happy.  Our wine will make YOUR DAY!

10. Our ambiance  is as good as our wine!  Joy and fun always!

By the time school was over for the year I had learned to walk and run really well, so my human, Frank, Jr., and I began training for the calf “Olympics.” 

He taught me how to follow him, to stop and stand with my legs even and then to start again with my right foreleg. 

It was all very complicated but after many, many hours of practice my human and I both became more comfortable with what we should do.

Oh, goodness, it’s supper time!  I’ll be back to tell you more in a few days!
