A Day in the Life of a Grape Farmer
3:30am: Awaken to frost alarm. Fire up the windmill for a few harrowing hours until dawn.
7:30: Groggy Winemaker Son arrives. Exchange pleasantries and play fetch with “grand-dogs”.
9:00: Dew finally gone, off to hand-pick some Five Rows Shiraz.
9:03: “Man, they look beautiful!”
10:30: coffee #5
10:30 – 6:00: A sun-filled, back-achin’ day of quality Father/Son/Shiraz time.
