Julie & John McDonald at their first event

Brett & Karen are hard workers.
Good job Karen!

What a Day!
I was so blessed by all the guys and gals that showed up on Saturday to help with bottling 653 bottles of wine (according to my husbands calculations). I know this was such a blessing to John to be able to meet so many of you and to sell two barrels of his wine. He sent me a truly thankful text last night.
John's surprise gift from Marsha...her famous blue cheese pecan appetizers.
As for us, it was such a unique opportunity to see and experience so much of the process it takes to produce a bottle of wine. Maybe our next big venture should be planting a vineyard...hehehe...apparently you never know what can happen to a seemingly innocent group of women who were just setting out to explore the wine region around their community....
Michelle Bell's amazing signature footwear for the day.
My pictures did not turn out very good with the lighting and my cheap snap and I had a little fun with them to document part of the day. Many more pictures I am sure will be forth coming.
A big thanks again to all, and especially Gayle our fearless leader, her helpers (you know who you are) and of course Mr. John Gabriel. Also one big thank you to Mike Andrews of Coyote Canyon for sharing his facilities with us for the day. And bless the gal pouring in the front for putting up with all our hoopla.
