First growth.

After much work, we planted the first 100 vines in April of 2009 with no idea whether wine grapes would grow here. As far as we know, these are the first wine grapes planted in Kerr County. After two weeks in the ground, the first tiny leaves appeared.

By July, we could see that our soil would grow grape vines, and we began making plans for planting more.
