Happiest of New Years to all our friends, customers, and followers! We are so thankful for all the support so far. Hope everyone gets a chance to come out and share this beautiful place with us. Happy New Year from our family to yours!
We are especially thankful this year! We had our first tasting on Small Business Saturday at Homegrown. It was exciting and super fun!!
Saturday 11 – 6
Sunday 11 – 5
Fall is setting in early this year and the grapes are showing it. The tasting room is at 85% and we are gearing up for the final pieces. Keep looking in for our opening date.
In July we were so honored to be featured in the Summer Issue of the East Texan Magazine! Thank you so much for all the support you have us so far! We can not wait to open our doors in such a great place: Livingston & Polk County! We finished the deck on the front of the tasting room. It’s ready for some front porch sipping! Harvest is right around the corner at all the local Vineyards, so be on the lookout if you want to be a part of one.
We are finally out of school and get to be here all day every day. It’s hard work, but brings so much pride and happiness. It has been a busy month already! One of our longhorns, Nina, calved her second calf Santa Maria. She’s precious and spunky! The vines are growing SO much everyday that we can barely keep up. We also added two horses to our little herd, Princess Buttercup & Princess Sophia. The tasting room had been put on hold for a while due to planting and then us moving, but we are back to construction. The deck will be up by the end of the weekend then on to the inside and finishing touches.
May has brought a lot of growth to the vines! They are flourishing in the hot, sunny, Spring weather. All that new growth means pruning! We (Max always wants to help) are out pruning at least three days a week. We are not harvesting this year in order to give the vines another year of root and trunk development. The longer you wait the stronger your vines are. We prune off all the little clusters, but sometimes we miss one and they have a chance to develop a little further. It’s always fun to find cute little hidden cluster while working.
