Tonight we attended the opening of the Southard Winery. Below is a photo of their vineyard. Because I have walked by their property for years, it has been a treat to see their acreage transformed into a producing vineyard and winery. I wrote a story about the winery in 2007, a year before their first harvest in 2008. And then I was able to participate in that first harvest which produced the grapes for the great Riesling wine we purchased tonight.
Doug, Scott, Nicole and Kevin embarked on what so many dream about: a family-run business. Each has contributed to making it a success. It has been so much fun to watch it come true for you.
Congratulations all of you. And thanks for a great wine!
