Lieb Behind The Scenes – January  2018

Hey all, happy 2018! This new year is especially happy for us here at Lieb because we have A LOT in store.

In my last post, I reviewed what I learned while working as a harvest intern at our winery.  Since then, we successfully completed harvest (the last bins of grapes were picked the first week in November), started pruning our vines to get them ready for next year’s growing season and have been working on getting our 2017 vintage wines ready...

I’m not too sure at this point whether or not summer actually happened. It’s mid-December. How did we get here!? The patio is empty, the awning has been put away. Crowds are winding down in the tasting room, and many of our low-key wine club members/locals are finally coming out of hiding (hi guys!).

However I find myself struggling to get out to the stores to Christmas shop during the month of December. Because I work in the service/hospitality industry, I really love my peace and quiet on my days off. The thought of dodging in-a-rush drivers, waiting in long lines and being a witness...

It’s the most wonderful time of the yearrrr...

No, not Christmas, although it seems to be forcing itself upon us earlier and earlier each year. It’s Thanksgiving. The holiday that’s most important to me. It is fall’s grand finale, a time to celebrate and be thankful for our loved ones and all the blessings in our lives. We do so by stuffing ourselves to the brim with food and drink. I can close my eyes and taste the stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce and turkey. *Wipes...
