A huge thanks to the two young men who kept up with all the chores of vineyard management this Summer. Elliot and Lee Cassel both stepped up this year and agreed to do the work in our vineyard this Summer. And what a Summer it was! The second highest rain total on record for any year, made the vines grow like weeds. Keeping up with the shoot pulling, shoot placement, cluster thinning and disease management was a huge job this year. It was great to have you two taking charge and replacing me when We really needed your help this year. The vineyard looks great as we head into harvest and it is all thanks to your work. Thanks guys, you did a great job. Good luck this year in college.
