right around the corner

So the panic and the excitement are both setting in as we've now come to the realization that we have just over two weeks until the first of TWO harvests. The good news: it now appears these two are not going to happen at the same time (as previously feared). 

Pinot is just around the corner and in a couple weeks we'll be up in Humboldt in some sort of beverly hillbillies assortment of truck and trailer - picture the two of us driving down the 101 listening to loud music oblivious to the fact that grapes are flying out of the trailer and striking the vehicles behind us. 

All in the bay area that wish to help sort (we'll feed you wine!) count yourselves recruited!

For all of you in WA that wish to help sort you have a couple weeks longer to become familiar with the inner workings of the syrah grape.

We've also come to realize why companies end up blowing so much of their budgets on marketing departments. While i was suffering away in the north bay Dan and Brian were busy blowing the deux punx shoestring budget on mojitos by the pool in LA. For a life long Giants fan and a life long Padres fan these two are seeming far too comfortable with the LA lifestyle:

I bleed black and orange buddy! I couldn't figure our why everyone in LA was giving me the finger. I think it was the Giants license plate frame.

Glad to see there's no love lost between the Hillcrest and Castro boyz.

Y'all need to get out of the city more often and into the sunlight.

Time to fire that Dan guy... after the harvest of course.
