Riggs, our Assistant Vineyard Manager, was born into the wine industry. When Emeritus Vineyards was established, he was out planting vines with the crew and has been a piece of the Emeritus puzzle ever since.
Hosted by the Agriculture Council of America (ACA), National Ag Day was launched in 1973 to recognize the important contributions of America’s farmers and ranchers. It’s a day to celebrate the industry for providing almost everything we eat, use, and wear on a daily basis.
At Emeritus Vineyards, we do everything we can to work lightly upon the earth. The world is what we make it, and this is especially true of sustainability; we want our vineyards (and our world) to last!
Being so close to the Laguna de Santa Rosa Wetlands Preserve and doing everything we can to be as sustainable as possible, we get all kinds of visitors, including birds, dragonflies, and frogs. For World Wildlife Day, we’re shining a spotlight on these special vineyard guests!
With February comes the imminent promise of the end of frost, which we eagerly await here at Hallberg Ranch and Pinot Hill. It also evokes visions of the classic boxes of chocolates, bouquets of roses, and heart-speckled greeting cards of Valentine’s day.
What better time to reflect on expressions of love?
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life,” said Confucius. And if you love your job, that’s great! But there should be things that you do purely for your own enjoyment and enrichment, too.
