Let's start this newsletter out with a drumroll because we broke a new bottling record! Last Saturday we bottled What The Foch at 753 bottles per hour! That is 62.75 cases an hour! Even more significant: we did 204 cases it in 3 hours and 15 min!
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL OF OUR VOLUNTEERS!
We literally could not have done it without you!
Reply to this email if you would like to volunteer for bottling on a Saturday this summer!
We are currently looking to fill every Saturday June - August. We start at 8:15am and finish 4 hours later, then we feed you and pour you all the wine you want! Then we send you home with two bottles!

Good Morning: Thursday 5/5/16
Another week going into the record book and another week of fast growing lawn. Mary did quite a lot of cutting yesterday. It must be almost five years now we are running a zero turn mower. When we first got it I told Mary to drive in the parking lot a while to get used to steering with the two handles, I was afraid she might drive into the pond. Like a fish in water, she took off onto the lawn and has done very good with it since.
Speaking of "Like a fish in water". This week I brought my goldfish back to the little pond from their wintering in a cage at the bottom of the big pond by the driveway. I put 24 fish in the cage last fall and "Holy Mackerel", 24 fish were still alive this spring, wow. The first day back they swam around like happy children on a playground at recess time. I wanted to show you an actual photo of my babies, but I dropped my dumb smart phone into the little pond, it is now drying out in a bag of rice.
