Today's update from Messina Hof Winery's blog made me chuckle:
"Harvest is over at the Bryan vineyard. Though the volume of grapes were low due to hundreds of Mockingbirds and 20 resident deer, the quality this year was phenomenal due to the dry conditions and good sunlight. 2009 should be an excellent vintage."
Mental images aplenty, huh? I guess man and beast love the ol' fermented grape.
Lifting my glass to an "excellent 2009 vintage."
