Our first Newsletter, Spring 2007, just went out. We've been busy these past few weeks with so much office work it's been hard to believe. As I sit here now, Stef is printing out order forms, which will go out next week, and trying to make the label printer work.
Something easy to forget in this entire endeavor is that it is a small business. Books need to be kept, order forms printed, mail sent out, forms completed and 100's of other tasks that go with running any business. We joke a lot about being the 'Accounting Department' and 'Shipping Department' as we sit in the office at home.
This weekend though we'll be back out in the vineyards doing spring work, and Monday looks like we are set for bottling. It will be really nice to step away from the desk and get outside, or into the winery and smell the smells.
It's not all drudgery though, the nice part about being at home.... We just opened a bottle of wine to sip on while we work!
