It was so good to see you. I like the way your eyes sparkle
So every morning I’ve been taking my 2 Border Collies and now my Bengal kitties have joined me on a walk to the top of the Tempranillo vineyard. The weather has been so nice and I feel I’m getting stronger physically and mentally.
I like change, actually challenged by change. Not scary whether I make it or it’s determined by someone else but as I keep traveling the same road I’d like to think I’m taking the right choices and not repeating this over and over. They talk all the time about the circle of life but what about the circle of mistakes?
The road less taken

A lot of Beer
You know the saying it takes a lot of beer to make good wine well it takes a lot of great micro breweries to share camaraderie for 2500 to have a great time. The Firestone Walker Invitational today in Paso Robles was great! I loved the sour beer from Nebraska Brewing with raspberries. Yum
Lazy Hot Saturday
I worked 4 hours in the vineyard until it got too hot. I bet the vines are growing 4 inches a day and had to already lower wires and push shoot underneath. It’s hard for me to be patience as the clusters form under this very warm May day. I want to see vines laden with ripe Tempranillo but in my heart as I drop some of the fruit to the ground I know that is best
My daughter started making posts and adding pictures of my grandkids so the only way I could see them was if I joined. Found it was fun to play some games with people all over the world and a lot of them happened to be in the wine industry. Yes small world but even smaller when one of your FBF comes with his wife from England via a 10 month visit around the world and we spend the day together. It...

The weather will be nice for this road trip. Excited to taste the new wine that Quintessential just picked up. Ayres
