Sad news today in the winemaking world...........got my original equipment set and first wine kit from FVW, and lots more after that. Spent a fair amount of time on the phone with him in those early days, trying to figure out this whole winemaking mystery. George was always willing to offer good advice. Good dude, who will be remembered and missed.

George Cornelius

It is with a sad heart that I let everyone know that George passed away on Friday November 2nd.

If you have been following the updates in the news letters about his health the last two months you know he has had his ups and downs trying to recover from his surgery in early September. His Family and Doctors moved him to a skilled nursing facility 2-3 weeks ago to help the recovery process. He had his good day sand his bad days, the recovery was going slow. The two days prior, he had gone two nights without needing any additional oxygen while sleeping. Needless to say, this was a big shock to his family, friends and everyone here at the store.

There is never a good way to break this type of news to family, friends or customers. Rest assured that George thought of many of you as family and friends and no one was "just a customer" to George.
