Chinese New Year is a special time for us at Grace Vineyard, as we contemplate the snowy vineyards surrounded by the warmth of family and friends. In celebration and thanks, we want to let our friends join us in tasting the new vintage, almost like an invitation to a movie preview.
Each new vintage will be accompanied by an ancient song or poem that holds a special meaning for us. Hopefully through these beautiful words, and a connection to the new vintage, we can connect to the history and present, celebrating this festive time of year.
