First Grape Crush

small-wine_030My first grape crush was in 1995 with my Italian Chef buddy Luciano.

We picked 2,000 pounds of Carignon grapes from Mendocino County California.  Crushed in our backyard in oak barrels with our clean washed feet just like Lucy!

What a party lots of homemade pasta, sausage and lot’s of vino with our 2 family’s and friends.  My first commercial vintage 2012 Sauvignon Blanc and Winemaker’s Red Blend.
