So about five years ago, when the call came seeking volunteers to help pick grapes, we didn't need much convincing and it has become our annual fall ritual.
|Nylon netting over the grapes protect them from birds and wild turkeys.|
Netting is removed just before we start picking.
|Volunteers set out to do the picking|
|Picking and chatting over the grape vines|
|Thirty one varieties of grapes are grown here but on this day we're picking La Crescent, a white varietal,|
which will become a fruity dessert wine.
|Then we have lunch of homemade soup, freshly baked bread and, of course, wine.|
The spectacular views bring us back year after year.
