While the car was significantly damaged the only damage to Scott
was a few bruises to his
body and one major bruise to his
ego-something that also occurs, when competing against the editor, each time he
is in a sailboat race.
Thought for the week: Priorities - Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone.
Also Scott the editor's partner at Glenora and Knapp is racing his cars at the track this weekend-so far all of the wheels are on the ground.
Thought for the week: Courage and Convictions - Courage is never to let your actions be influenced by your fears ]]>
On Thursday one of them grabbed an open face steak sandwich right off a customer's plate-needless to say they (the peacocks) are now caged.
We have a new chicken coop at Knapp-thanks to Scott
and Lori Welliver who decided that being gentleman chicken farmers was not as exciting as they imagined!
Thought for the Week: Tact - Tact is the knack of making a point without making an enemy; it is after all a kind of mind reading. ]]>
That is not the case now as our new bottling can apply those closures.
More history-while Knapp is currently celebrating its 28th anniversary it was 10 years ago at this time of year when Ed, Scott
and the editor purchased the Knapp winery
from Doug and Suzy Knapp-time flies!!
Thought for the Week: Sincerity - Often times more harm is done by the falseness of trying to please than by the honesty of telling it as it appears. ]]>
The team finished bottling at 1:30 PM and by 4 PM the machine was disassembled and out of the bottling room as we began to prepare the room for the installation of the new line which had arrived on Wednesday.
A new Glenora Team-the Construction Team, headed by Glenora partner Scott Welliver arrived on Friday morning to install new floor drains and refinish the floor in the bottling room.
By day's end on Friday the new drains were installed and most of the resurfacing had been done.
Name suggestions came from Sarah, Joanne, Sherry, Laura, and I forgot-all get two bottles Glenora's finest-their choice.
The Today Show-on Thursday the Today showed featured the Inn at Glenora http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/37755017#37755017 Scott
is drawing up plans for new/additional rooms.
Inside Scoop-stayed tuned for the release, July 1, 2010, of a new wine packaging concept by Glenora Wine Cellars-the first of its kind in the United States!!
Congratulations to the Knapp Winemaking Team (and to the crew who picked and pressed the frozen grapes that were harvested for the ice wine). It is happening again—in 1972 the editor purchased a Hobie Cat sailboat, it was not long after that, that Scott Welliver who was soon to become a very good friend and future partner at Glenora did the same—now some 38 years later he is still trying to keep up—this past week he bought a chicken coop and 12 chickens (actually the editor had to get them for him)—raising chicken is something that the editor has been doing for several years—along with that Scott is now planting rhubarb and horseradish, again something editor was or has been doing for at least 30 years—and while we are at it, he also is getting in to race cars—the editor was racing, and winning, at the Dundee Speedway in the late 60’s.
gets a pilot’s license (airplanes) he
will have completed the circuit—or at least to this point. Thought for the week: Friends—from the 11 April 99 edition - There are no words to express the abyss between isolation and having one ally. ]]>
The award was presented by our own Scott Welliver, Glenora partner, and a long time friend of the Schamels.
may have missed his
calling – he
is a great stand up master of ceremonies. Today the Knapp Team will be hosting their annual Limo/Bus Drivers Appreciation Day event.
The only grapes that are still in the field for the Glenora
Team are those at Lamoreaux Landing Vineyards which will be harvested for Iced Wine on Tuesday and taken directly to the freezer at Dundee Foods—most likely those grapes will be pressed during the week of the 9th. This week the Glenora
Press deck team received Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon from Sawmill Creek Vineyards; Cabernet Franc from Dalrymple and Norbud Vineyards; and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Mason Vineyards (Welliver).
On Monday it was Pinot Noir from Glenora Farms, and Cayuga from Glenora Farms and Joyful Vineyards; Tuesday was a rack and lees filter day (Tasha seems to have taken over the role of “Lees Lady”—the person who runs the lees filter), Wednesday it was Pinot Blanc from Sawmill Creek and Welliver
, Vignoles from Cobblestone; Thursday it was Cayuga from Glenora Farms and Dalrymple Vineyards; and on Friday it was Cayuga from Dalrymple Farms—a total of 127 tons for the week.
