Bacchus we thank who gave us wine
Which warms the blood within our veins;
That nectar is itself divine.
The man who drinks not, yet attains
By godly grace to human rank
Would be an angel if he drank.

This Wednesday @ Natali we picked MERLOT. MmMmMm Merlot. Love it. We had a blast, as always. Here are some shots:

Me + My Merlot Cluster.

This was just one post!

Sammy and Kev, collecting our grapes to bring to Chuck.... that Chuck can start the process.

And favorite part....drinking and eating w/ boss man Ray!!!
Wine buffs write and talk as though the food and wine will be in your mouth at the same time, that one is there to be poured over the other. This is bullshit. Gustatory enjoyment comes from food and wine and cigars of your liking. So far no one has said that a Monte Cristo is the only cigar to smoke after Armagnac, Romeo and Juliet after Calvados ... but the time may yet come.
