After the Blessing of the Grapes earlier in August, I made my way to Vasco Road to pay a visit to Alexandra Atterbury of Omega Road Winery. Harvest was indeed underway, as her parents and a couple of hard-working helpers were busily putting Verdelho from Ron Siletto’s vineyard in Lodi into the crusher/destemmer. The light green juice poured out like rays of lime-colored light through faded stained glass in an abandoned church.

The grapes were mighty tasty: something you wouldn’t mind partaking of at a 9 or 10am communion service. Verdelho is a darn sight more compatible with a sticky wafer than the plonk normally passed off for communion wine. Since Apple is working on a white wine emoji, maybe it’s time we offered people a choice in church as well. But I digress.
