    Hey everyone! I've been gone so long that I sure have a lot to catch up on, but am afraid that won't be yet for awhile. Hope everyone is doing just fine for everyone and busy with the Fresh fruit in season.


    George my saving's fund for Japan is coming along just fine, and ticket's have been bought leaving January 1st, 2008. We can hardly wait, to see the new grandbaby, daughter and new son-in-law. They will be stationed in Misawa for three years now. That's sure a long time! Thanks for being such a great friend and understanding my cash flow going from winemakingto the first new grandbaby. But, I"m still here in the back ground!


    A close friend of mine is planning a Wedding in January, and would like me to furnish a white wine for the Bride, Groom, and guests. I am a true friend of the reds, so have no idea as what would be best for the wedding.


    She did state she had a wine from a local liquor store that she thought was really grand with a peachy flavor, but unfortunately she didn't think to see what kind it was.


    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks to all in advance and take Care.

    You could do the W.E I.M Peach Apricot Chardonay, it is a really good
    Mist wine and you could add some sugar or part of the F-Pack in the
    beginning to up the ABV if you want to. Great to hear from you again
    and hope all stays well.

    Glad to hear the savings fund is growing. I, too, want LOTS of pictures of grandma and grandchild.


    Please give me a call, I have some nice selections that will be ready for January.
