The vineyards make me think of live, passion, yes hard work and sometimes debilitating labor, but happiness.  A REAL story, not just having a job because you have to….

The thoughts are consuming, coupled with memories of me and my friends in the St. Francis tasting room in 2009…

I remember loving the Viognier that year, think the vintage was ’07.  My friends made fun of me but I stood my ground.  I loved the slight RS, the peach and apricot rounds and movements… people around me would say “…great to try with Thai or Indian food.”

True, I remember thinking, but why not on its own, on a hot day?
