The planting of this first block was and is a significant project for our family. As we worked through the decisions on what to grow here, we finally landed on the vineyard “welcome mat”. This a decision making term we have used over the years for the last considerations given before opening the door and walking inside any new opportunity.
We stop and last question we ask is what is written on the door mat? Is it where we want to go?
So what was on the door mat as we considered this endeavor?? Intrigue, challenge, family, lure, time, fun, opportunity, experience, community, commitment, legacy, work, wine….all of those and so many more came to mind. But at the end of the day (beginning of project) the door mat read “Adventure”.
We will get to the white water rafting, hiking Kilimanjaro, and the African Safari as soon as we can! In the meantime this is Our Family Vineyard Adventure!
