In the NoFo: 3 Things We’re Buzzing About

jul blog

I’ve never been one to openly complain about the cold weather. That doesn’t mean I necessarily “enjoy” it –  it just means that I’ve always found it somewhat tolerable. This attitude, though, is no more. I’ve adopted the mindset of a 66-year-old woman. I want to live in a gated community in Florida, eat dinner at 4:30pm, and be in bed by 9:00pm. My hands are just dusty, scaly reminders of what life used to be.

My 5 Favorite Things – Alicia Ekeler-Valle

5THINGS

1) Yearly Planner: How lame could I possibly be to put my PLANNER on a list of favorite things? It’s lame, it’s true- but let me explain this one: My planner represents a blank slate of possibilities for all the days I have in a year’s time.

Whew.  Just like that, a month and a half has passed since my last blog post.  They say time flies when you’re having fun.  That’s certainly been the case.  Well, having fun and getting sh*t done!

In past posts, I’ve referred to Feb and Mar as “bottling season.”  This year, bottling season came early for Lieb Cellars.  As of today, all of our 2016 Bridge Lane whites and rosé have been finished, bottled and filled in boxes and kegs … and picked up by our distributors. ...

My 5 Favorite Things – Jul Fedele

jul's five

1. Dwight Schrute stress ball – This item is less about stress and more about comedy. A friend of mine thought it was Elton John when I first bought it (which, touché). If you don’t know who Dwight Schrute is, that tells me that you’ve never seen The Office, aaaaannnd for that you should be ashamed. The Office taught me how to have a sense of humor, and edified my idea of the absurd. To this day I will still give a Jim Halpert glance to an imaginary camera.
