working in the winery

its harvest season and im working at my aunts winery in the Napa valley. Its a crazy time of year here, and after three 11 and 12 hour work days this week, ive had a chance to upload some pictures.

Also, if you have a second, check this link out:
I saw George Riedel give a speech and wine tasting on his series of glassware for wines which was really fun, he was probably one of the best public speakers i have ever seen. I was really skeptical going in and thought who in their right mind is going to pay that much for wine glasses, but i left converted, it was awesome and the glasses were beautiful and worth a look.

Do you ever get to crush grapes by jumping on them, and thus, make wine? That is my dream. If you do, I may abandon the east coast and come join you. Even if you don't make wine, but just jump on grapes I'm in.

Also, what is the purpose of a decanter? We have one, but I don't know why.
