. . .in the heart of California Wine Country!
This is my very dear friend, Laurie.
About 80 of us gathered early in the morning and headed out to the fields where we proceeded to pick 2 tons of grapes. From here on out, the grapes are picked by machinery. . . 20 tons a day. I'm glad we didn't have to pick 20 tons.
We watched as the grapes were run through a machine to remove the stems, and then crushed to bring out all the goodness and juiciness. Oh my word, the juice is so delicious and sweet! THE best I've ever had.
Then, the party started and we were served a delicious feast. Wine was plentiful!
