not quiting the day job

I know, our business seems so professional that it’s hard to believe any of us still need to work at all.  The funny thing is that all of us at imbue, do exactly what we do for imbue, but for someone else (sort of).  Neil makes and sells drinks, Jen manages a tasting room and directs national sales,  and I am a winemaker by day (vermouth machinist by night.) 

This time of year is pretty interesting in the valley, everyone is prepping for harvest, cleaning things, and getting organized.  Today I racked 100 barrels of 2010 Pinot Noir at Patton Valley.  Pretty bitchin.  Take a look at a bit of the process.  Anyone know what that racking tool is called?
