I think we delivered on those invitation promises.
We made a few changes to the event this year.
The biggest change was in the food department.
We had it catered. More on that below.
Once again, Davie talked "vineyards" on the deck.
While he gave his presentation
the wine flowed freely.
As usual, he brought vines & vine parts to help folks
understand what the heck he was talking about.
Due to the weird weather year, he was able to bring pre-bloom, bloom & post bloom samples, and explain the different stages of development.
Then it was time to take a walk in the vineyard above the deck.
But then I had to leave to start the Corn Hole tournament.
The tournamant prizes were impressive this year:
1st place was a 3 Liter of the '04 D'Adamo
2nd place was a 1.5 liter of the 05 Firehouse
3rd place was an '07 Mimbre
Not bad for 3rd place!
This shot provides an overall picture of the game with the 2 platforms and a bag sailing through the air.
As you will notice, pitching/lobbing/throwing/hucking & chucking styles varied considerably.

All of these great pictures were taken by Macario's Mom again this year.
My only complaint is that she didn't provide a picture of herself.
So I'm forced to re-use last year's picture:
In the picture above we have our Assistant winemaker
Macario, his Dad, Malaquias, and his Mom, Lezlie.
Thanks once again, Lezlie!
