Sunday, November 14th was the perfect day for our harvest party. The weather was clear and crisp and although we still had ten tons of fruit to pick the following week, the vineyard and winery crew were in high spirits, well pleased with the quality of fruit brought in after a long and challenging growing season. Almost all of the vineyard, winery, tasting room and office employees turned out with their families, bringing the total number of guests to almost 100.
Mariachi Tarasco provided the entertainment, along with the equine talents of some beautiful dancing horses and their caballeros, including our own Surf and his man Mario. Vineyard foreman David Orozco was up all night making his famous carnitas and Taqueria Rosita drove up the mountain to bring all the fixings. There were three inflatable jumpy things for the little kids and an assortment of premium small production tequilas for the grown ups. Everyone stayed safe and a great day was had by all.
Special thanks to the Pride family for treating Team Pride to such a wonderful afternoon and to retail sales director Tim Bouchet for putting it together.
