Hercules (the first of his name). The sun rises…the birds stir…and Herc, well, he’s still sleeping. Not much of a morning crower and we respected that about him.

Those in the know are well aware of the fantastic opportunity that presents itself each year. Last year was Farmer & The Scientist’s debut and it was huge. We got to meet so many people and introduce so many of you to new varieties like Tempranillo. Because we don’t have a cellar door yet, events like this are the highlight of our year. We get to talk with people about our wines and see what they think.
