We went up with the kids to the vineyard in the Russian River Valley we source fruit from this weekend. The young shoots are out in full force, reaching for the sun and tiny clusters of flowers are starting to form. It was a beautiful day and we are off to a fabulous start for another great harvest from Lauterbach vineyard.
We have been taking the kids to wineries and vineyards for so many years and it is starting to pay off. Finally, no complaints, no arguing in the back seat. And they happily trekked after Dad up and down the rows, stopping, inspecting and enjoying themselves. A picnic and a stop at Powell’s Sweet Shoppe in Windsor on the way home might have helped a bit as well.
