The Accidental Winemaker
I never dreamed that I'd be a winemaker! Several years ago, we came to California with our small herd of horses to escape the Florida summers. While my wife was fully involved with the horses, I became interested in the vineyards around our ranch. Met some good people, got interested. And now, in 2020, we've bottled the first of grapes that I helped source and blend, wines that have my input with the assistance of master winemaker, Steve Clifton.
Hopefully, you will enjoy drinking these wines as much as I've enjoyed making them.
After barely touching down back in California to fulfill our Wine Club shipments and process a few orders, Rona and I are back on the East Coast, enjoying the last few weeks of the Winter Equestrian Festival at our farm in Wellington, FL. While our horses remained behind in CA this winter, we've enjoyed watching our niece, Sophia Mitchell, and her friends compete in the Junior Hunters and Equitation Classes. We also managed a quick afternoon at the Palm Beach Boat Show yesterday!
