Our Friends of the Vineyard
Each day we spend in the vineyard we are reminded why we do what we do. Working among the vines can be magical and mesmerizing. We are often filled with a sense of peacefulness, belonging and quiet purpose. Carrot and Riesling (AKA our vineyard managers) provide moral support and live entertainment for free! At other times it can be downright miserable, monotonous and even terrifying.
Working in the cold, rain, heat or humidity is no fun, but often necessary. Constant worry about timing, weather, pests and the threat of disease is not all that great either. Don't even get me started on the biting black flies!! ...
Still, at the end of the day, most days are good. And some days are completely perfect. You do your best. These two opposite, but not opposing forces connect us to nature and make us genuinely proud of the part we play in turning sunshine into wine. Our wine. And it is really good! We have learned so much about growing, people, and our place in the world. The very best part of these days is the time we spend with friends. It’s all good at BCV!
