Good Morning:
     To start with, happy 35th birthday to Doug, our oldest son living in Texas, it was yesterday.
     Second, Happy Father's Day this Sunday.  I googled the origins and found this.
     "Washington State celebrated the nation's first statewide Father's Day on July 19, 1910. Slowly, the holiday spread. In 1916, President Wilson honored the day by using telegraph signals to unfurl a flag in Spokane when he pressed a button in Washington, D.C. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge urged state governments to observe

Father's Day. "

     My opinion: I know that mothers are important in the family unit, the sad thing is that fathers also important but too often absent or non-nurturing in the family unit.  I think that a mom's perspective and a dad's perspective being different by nature of our genders together can give children an overall better balance in life.
      Given this, please visit us this Sunday, Father's Day.  All our tours are Free this day for everyone as a thank you to  our fathers.
     We have been busy in the vineyard again this week.  Still working on tying cordons in two varieties and tucking the new growth.  Tucking means manually pushing the new growth between pairs of canopy wires where it

than can climb up high as it grows.  Much of the grapes are also now in bloom.  They have flowers, but not showy colors.  Because the grapes are self pollinating, I believe this is why over the centuries they've not developed colorful flowers.

     This week is last call for our Free Case Club party.  Know that if you don'thave a bag?  Buy a full case, 12 bottles, at the party and we'll still include you for the party.  The food, the music, and the party will be fantastic, enjoy.  Total details below.
     Welcome to vendors for Our Anniversary and Ethnic Festival on July 18th and 19th.  If you'd like to be a vendor, please email me at donmillner@gmail.com .  I will return a vendor application to you.

     Do you recognize this bag? If you bought a case of wine at Millner Heritage Winery in approx. the last two years, you received a bag like this.
     As you probably already know this bag always gives you case discount on just buying at least 6 bottles, forever.
     This bag is also the entry ticket for two guests for our case club up-coming appreciation party. Don't have a bag? Buy a full case, 12 bottles, at the party and we'll still include you for the party.
