Four Ordinary Days
With an impending move from long-time home in the "city" the author concerned herself with finding something for her husband, long time college baseball coach, Gary, to do in the more rural community of Bear Valley Springs. At random, she selected a book on wine-making. Ten years later, she is certain that the "monster" she created with that book was well worth it, because both the Adamses are now fully engaged in the full production of Syrah and Malbec wines, organically grown and estate produced – that is, growing, harvesting, processing and bottling it themselves! The journey is fascinating, ever-changing, and in the end, a journey of love. Four otherwise ordinary days in early autumn become extraordinary, as a growing band of friends and family come to share in the work and the satisfaction of the journey from vines to wines. The humor, the errors and the entire journey is exposed here for the reader to see and enjoy!
