Stock Up For The Holidays

We've picked up and crushed our last ton of grapes for the season (the first ever Zinfandel that LLWC has produced). But that doesn't mean the work stops. We'll still be pressing the fermented wine of 3 varietals the next few weekends. Stop by and check it out. Just don't get too close or you're bound to get sprayed by wine.

November is the start of the holiday season, and we have no shortage of fun events at the winery.
