“Our truest life is when we are in our dreams awake.”
Henry David Thoreau
They say choosing the terroir and soil for winegrapes is more important than choosing who you will marry. It couldn’t be more true for the finicky grape, Pinot Noir. It requires the perfect soil conditions and the love and attention from those who tend the vine. When I first stepped foot into the vineyard it hit me like a lightening bolt – this place was a dream come true and I knew I’d spend the rest of my days here. I came home to these roaming hills on Finnigan Hill in the fall of 2011.
My name is Cassie Wieden, and I am the owner/operator of Finnigan Hill Vineyards. This blog is about my personal, professional something of spiritual journey through these first few years here at the vineyard.
Thank you for visiting – WE ARE CURRENTLY UNDER RE-CONSTRUCTION OF THIS PAGE – See you again soon!
My vineyard journal is in chronological order beginning upon my return to these hills, but you can also jump to the most current entry if you wish.
