A satisfying fatigue enfolds me. I guess I could complain and say my back hurts and I’m exhausted after bottling fourteen cases of wine yesterday. But what fun we had! Bud and I and a couple of friends washed, rinsed, sterilized, filled, corked, labeled and boxed 171 bottles of our 2013 wine. Of course some sampling went on to make sure we had just the right blend. Now as I see the wine stacked on the shelves, the tiredness in my body feels good…a job well done. The process starts all over again as we prepare to harvest this year’s grapes. It promises to be an even better vintage. How good it is to see the fruits of our labors. It brings joy to the heart.
