While you might be excused for thinking we are sending our wines to outer space, this is actually a container bound for the United States with a foil liner for temperature control. Maybe you will be enjoying one of these bottles at some swanky place in New York city in a month?!
Close call last week as there was a brush fire on the mountain behind the farm. I hauled up there to catch some Apocolypse-now style helicopter flyovers by the Winelands municipality fire service. Fortunately the fire was under control within a few hours.
The duck family on our small reservoir is finally grown up enough not to be terrified and let me snap a photo. There are eight mini-ducks all together. Or maybe they are geese, I’m not sure I even know the difference!
