Michael and I selling Valley Girl Wine’s wares at a Día de Los Muertos event in Viñas de La Erre. Saludos!
So lucky to have my beautiful daughter and Michael here
Great Grapes = Happy Winemaker. Me at one of my favorite vineyards in Valle de la Grulla.
Sorting Grenache berries
Shoveling grape skins in my signature pink winemaking boots
I have a tradition where I put a candle for every year I’ve been making wine in the last “cake” (pressed grape skins) of harvest
I’m in a cement fermentation tank shoveling grape skins out as we go to press
Every once in awhile we have to sample the goods!
Winemaking is NOT glamorous. It’s hard work!!! Here I am filling the basket press with grape skins.
