Back to the Future
I hope most of you haven't gotten it, this nasty cold that's going around. I came down with it hard yesterday and my head feels like it's going to explode. What's worse, my kid got a hover craft for Christmas and the rumble it makes as she tears around the house is not helping the aching in my head. It's wonderful really, this motorized scooter thing that her Grandparents got for her, but she does everything but bathe on the damn thing. I'm not certain that she doesn't bring it into the bathroom with her. I'm sitting here, trying to write about our big James Berry Vineyard Rosé bottling tomorrow, and it sounds like a damn earthquake is going to hit. Nope, it's Elizabeth headed to the pantry for a snack. Once her treat is chosen, she will then swivel on a dime to the microwave to warm up said treat. Once the treat is toasty, she realizes she wants to snack and do her homework at the same time. So, she does a few 360 degree turns for style points and zips down the hall, with our two cats and the geriatric dog all diving for safety as she makes like Mario Andretti to fetch her books.
I can't complain, so I won't. The cold is beginning to subside and my excitement for bottling day is overwhelming my desire to belly ache. I am so proud of this rosé and I know my wife Ciera will be thrilled when she gets to taste it for the first time. So there you have it. Tomorrow is rosé day, and if you would like to buy some, it's up in the shop. This is the 2019 James Berry Vineyard Rosé of Counoise and with a total bottling of 85 cases, it's not going to be in stock long.
Until next time, I'll leave you with this quote from Doc:
"The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?"
