Taking a moment this thanksgiving to say thank-you to those that helped in the harvest and in various other capacities through the year.
Arrow Lakes Vineyard has grown and we would struggle without the assistance of family and friends. This year was particularly difficult as some of our usual family harvest hands were unable to assist due to timing, which was in itself unusual. We also had to harvest over several weeks with multiple deliveries to the winery.
But we had neighbors, friends (from as far as Winnipeg, and another from just up the road, and yet another returning helper who had previously lent a hand over 10 years ago) and my brother to fill the gap.
Wishing everyone a happy thanks giving!
