The newly created pruner attachment for the tractor is completed and testing is underway. This will really help with vineyard management. We could even expand a bit since this will speed up the late winter/early spring pruning schedule.
The stomp was a great success. We had lots of new customers and some long time friends out to visit. Mike and Nancee Micham (EzNDil) put on a wonderful show. The day was a bit chilly, but the sun shone and the food was good. Couldn't ask for much more.
We will be at White Rose Winery in Carthage on October 16 for the Ozark Wine Trail event. This will be part of the Maple Leaf Festival.
The foliage is beginning to really show it's colors. Ava is having their annual Glade Top Trail Tour on October 17. Stop in and see us on your way to the tour. It is gorgeous country in Douglas and Ozark county. There is music and BBQ at Caney Mountain Pavilion. Check the Ava Chamber of Commerce for more details.
We will be closed Monday, October 11th. We are going to visit Arkansas Glass Containers. We hope to buy our bottles from them instead of the imported "stuff" we've gotten in the past. Local saves us shipping and reduces our carbon foot print. It also helps a business that employs over 100 people. Buying local is a good thing!
