    Default Visit to the Vineyard


    Saturday morning I had the chance to visit one of our local San Diego
    County Vineyards. Stan and I happened to meet the owner in Albertson's
    a few weeks ago and we were invited to visit. We got a private tour
    and were thrilled, what a treat!!!

    If you are interested here's the story on my blog.

    Ask the owner if he needs help harvesting the grapes. My DH and I were
    visiting a vineyard in Missouri near Cape Girardeau just doing some
    tasting and we got to talking with the owner. He asked us what we were
    going to be doing the next day. We told him were just hanging around the
    area (this was when we lived in our RV) and he hired us to harvest
    grapes. We came back the next morning and picked grapes next to some
    very interesting people. One was an artist, another a college professor
    another a foreign exchange college student. It was lots of fun and they
    fed us a really nice lunch, too.

    We each got paid $32 in cash so we bought some wine and I made DH take
    me out to eat as I had labored in the vineyards all day and was not
    about to start cooking.

    That's considered a privilege here, at least for the small or private
    vineyard. I help my neighbors but don't get paid, however I can help others
    and get paid AND lunch, like you. There's a tradition not to take money
    from neighbors unless you are hiring them to do their specialty, like mason
    or plumber.

    Wow! Now I can add that we were privileged to the story. Thanks!
