A very special selection of just 7 barrels, from Fiddlestix, hand-picked by the very discriminating palates of the Fiddlehead team. This marriage of barrels was just aching to happen. It embraces the combination that makes a better wine together than any of the barrels alone.
And this wine is close to my heart for more reasons than just its incredible blend. The expressive artwork that adorns the bottle, "Lucy's 500", was painted by my sister, artist Jody Joseph, making it the newest addition to our collectible, artist series. Burtie Baby is the great nickname my mom gave to my dad, Burt, whose smile lit up every room and presence brought joy to all. My dad encouraged me to explore, to experience the world, to be good to other people, to be tolerant of differences, to respect others, to challenge myself, to have confidence and to be humble. He taught me right from wrong, to have love for the arts, the importance of the First Amendment, and the value of good food and good friends. My dad encouraged and supported my independence, my individuality and my ambitions. In fact, it was he who suggested I pursue a career in winemaking!
Like my Dad, this wine is 100% charming and promises to be good company and a treasured friend.
