Had an informative afternoon yesterday at @nottingham_cellars as they finished their 2017 harvest. Check out their tasting room in Livermore!! I met a gentleman from Arkansas in the parking lot who was vending bbq food for the micro brewery @altamontbeerworks on the other side. Hearing him talk in his distinctive accent reminded me of my time in North Carolina(yes..I know..diff states..still it’s about a memory evoked) .. and this quote by #elinorwylie : [..] The winter will be short, the summer long, The autumn amber-hued, sunny and hot, Tasting of cider and of scuppernong. [..] #Scuppernong is the state fruit of North Carolina.. a native #muscadine grape of the deep South. Maybe it will take to livermore.. who knows!
Only 5 days until our John Green Extravaganza and midnight release of "Turtles All the Way Down"!

Going to try making #muscadine jam/jelly for the first time! These are local #scuppernong (bronze) and noble varieties from the Agee's vineyard in Brookland, #Arkansas . They smell incredible and have a crazy unique flavor.
