Good Morning:    10:30 am
   In a single sentence, "The grapes are growing."  The Valiant grapes are into full verasion (changing color for ripening) and the Marquette grapes are starting verasion.  We have some heat coming for the next three day, the grapes love it.
     Yesterday Iza (8 yr. old granddaughter) went with me to pickup supplies for this weekend.  After we loaded we ate big at an Asian buffet and still went to Cokato Corn days and age more sweetcorn. We were full.  It is good to do these jobs with her.  On the way home I told her that people my age sometimes die suddenly.  If I were to die suddenly, it's OK for her to cry but then go on with your life and be happy.  She asked me, "Should we have a party?"  I said, "Yes by all mean.  You can have it at the winery, tell stories and have fun."   It's good to cover you bases, you never know.
Do you like pretty Cars?
This Saturday August 15 we have a Corvette Car Club coming to the winery.
Twenty two corvettes are scheduled to arrive at 12 noon.  They are doing our tours and tasting, how long they stay?  Come early to not miss them.  Corvettes are fast cars so I don't know when they'll be gone.
Are they faster than a speeding bullet?
     We have a party coming to the winery:

Harvest  Parties!
     If you like a party, this is the time to sign up.  The list is growing, Jon told me we could have a record harvest this year.  
 If you'd like to be part of a harvest party follow the instructions below.  If this is new to you:
 1.Being a harvest volunteer means working about 4 hour in the vineyard cutting off clusters of grapes into pails, those pails then dump into bins right in the vineyard.
 2. We then haul the bins to the winery for processing.
  3. Usually we start about 8:30 in the morning  complete by 12:30.
  4. Then we bring in a very nice meal, all the wine you'd like to drink.
  5. Then send bottles of wine home with you.  I don't have specific date now, to register I need your name, a good phone number, days of the week when you can come, and how many people in your group.
Some of the harvest is on weekday and some on weekends, the variable is how the when the grapes are a peak flavor to harvest.  All of our contact is via phone voice, not texting, therefore a good phone number is important.
