great excuse to get outdoors and have some fun! So, I asked my Fiddle Crew what
they have planned for the upcoming 3-day weekend...
Stephen Villa, Assistant Winemaker
"I will be conquering the Lompoc summer covered in grape juice and pulp matter. Perhaps I may even treat myself to a Red Bull (or three) while doing donuts on the forklift."
Luis Ramirez, Tasting Room Manager
"I will be spending my day evading the heat.
I will go for a morning trail ride with my old man
in the La Purisima Hills of Lompoc (much cooler).
Then in the evening hopefully getting in my studio
to begin my next body of work."
Nicole Garcia, Wine Club & Direct Sales Manager
"This Labor Day weekend I will be unpacking from my fantastically wonderful honeymoon (hopefully with a really great tan!). Then I will spend the remainder of the holiday figuring out what life is like without a schedule consumed with wedding planning…which will surely include chowing down on junk foods like pizza and ice cream!"
Kristen Mullin, Accounting & Compliance
"This Labor Day weekend I will be spending time
with my family. We will be outside enjoying the sunshine, bbqing beer brats, and sipping on margaritas! There is no better way to celebrate
Labor Day than to just relax!"
Miranda Poett, Tasting Room Extraordinaire
"I'll be spending my Labor Day out at the beach with
some great friends. Barbeque, bocce ball, frisbee,
the whole nine yards. And with any luck I'll be able
to avoid getting an awful sunburn, which seems
to be a running theme so far with my Labor
Days! I'm stocking up on suncreen!"
Natalie Leschuk, Office Manager
"I am starting off my Labor Day weekend with a trip to Reno for the 'Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off'! After my belly is full and fully satisfied, I'll be competing (or at least trying to!) in an annual Labor Day weekend outdoor volleyball tournament. To keep cool, I will top it all of with a wet and wild canoing trip down the Russian River. Hopefully I'll have some time to squeeze in a BBQ and a glass of FIddlehead!"
And as for me...I am on call to make wine!
The heat spike of 2004 will not be forgotten.
(Truth be known: if the grapes are not ready I
will be at a wedding dancing up a storm!).
Cheers to you and yours this Labor Day Weekend!
