apple_pathways: Whatever floats your boat! (Triplets of Belleville)
Today, my dad and I went to visit my aunt and uncle to help them harvest their grapes to make wine. It was a gorgeous day, and I had a great time. (Aided by much sampling of previous years' products!)

They have a nice little vineyard where they grow about 7 varieties of grapes; today we picked the three white ones. (La Cresent, New York, and Traminette) They call their label "Stray Dog", after all of the dogs they've taken in over the years. (You'll see one of them, Marnie, featured in the pics. The other dog they have now, Karma, I somehow didn't get a picture of!) They don't sell their wine, but they have won medals (including a double gold!) in the Indy International Wine Competition.

The vineyard was beautiful, and watching my cousin go through the process of making the wine was fascinating. It was a lovely way to spend a lovely day. Behind the cut, find a giant picpsam of the vineyard!
