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.

Bells will be ringing...

Wedding bells that is.  After quite a long time, we've actually done it and Rona is officially my wife...I know, most people think we had already done this years ago, but though I considered her my wife, it is now a legal truth as well. 

Quietly, with just a few people, on the property in Ocala before we start our holiday travels and my 70th birthday celebration.  I realized that I didn't want to reach 70 without being married to my best friend and person I'd shared so much of my life with, so we quickly arranged a good friend to perform the ceremony, decorated the barn a little more for Christmas, with a nice dinner at The Equestrian after...horses and ducks in attendance for the ceremony, of course!
