I'm on the verge of leaving the workforce and going full time as an entrepreneur. It occurred to me as I'm sitting at my day job that I should get a real clear picture of where we are in the wine business.
Not that I'm flaky or inattentive, but there are certain aspects to this that belong to Paul, in many ways I really am just the inspiration. He keeps good track of the business plan and where we are headed in terms of growth.
Today I've been asking questions and taking notes.
Total barrel counts are below for each vintage year.
2005 = 4 barrels (100 cases)
2006 = 14.5 barrels (363 cases)
2007 = 34 barrels (850 cases)
2008 = 51 planned (1275 cases)
Not that blogging about this is relevant, but I'm hoping that maybe if I put this down "on paper" it will become more tangible.
In many ways I'm looking forward to putting all of my energy into Stefania Wine, the vineyards, and the winery, it's an exciting change. It will be good to be more 'hands on' especially with the amount of growth planned for this years winemaking.
Bring it On!
