Lowden Flood 2011

Know the saying, there are no such things as a dull moment? Well that seems to ring especially true at the winery. Last Monday we arrived to a lake in what use to be our parking lot, production buildings and back yard. The little irrigation ditch behind the winery breached in the night and water flowed everywhere!

Rick, Kevin and the cellar crew went into damage control mode and started diverting water right away.  We're lucky that we keep everyone on pallets and didn't lose any wine. It could have been much worse! I guess this is what I get when I start wishing for warm weather in the middle of winter with snow all the way down the Blues.
