I grew up here on my dad's farm that we turned into the Sainte Genevieve Winery over 20 years ago. I'm the educated enologist and he's the experienced farmer/business man. We try to treat the land and the wine with kindness, like a member of our family(sometimes we treat them nicer than family ;)) This is our little place on earth, and I thought you might enjoy seeing it from my perspective.
This is a picture of the Norton going through veraison, which is when the berries begin to soften, and the grapes start to turn purple. It will be a while before we harvest these grapes, but this year, we're just happy to have them.
