As I was helping my husband with his IG account, we were describing his interests and hobbies. 🍷
One of his past endeavors was making wine from a Syrah vineyard, that our neighbor decided she didn’t want to harvest that year and offered us the opportunity. What an undertaking that was!
We had to care for the vineyard starting in May, which was a lot of work, then harvest the grapes in September of 2013. With the expertise of our dear friend, @ Dad, a vineyard manager in Santa Barbara’s wine country, we began the wine making journey.
After five years, we can say this wine is a smooth, full-bodied wine. One barrel produced 23 cases of wine. Over these past five years, we have given away more than we have kept as gifts, etc. Our son, @ who helped us harvest the grapes, said we should keep some for ourselves, which we will now do😳. We now have 11 cases to enjoy with family and friends. 🍷
We also had one of our best friend’s @ daughter, @tor, photograph the label and her parents had it made for us. It was a team effort, and I miss all the amazing people back in Solvang.🍷❤️❤️
