Last Week’s Link Love: August 3

Whew! Thank god that week is over. I spent the bulk of it feeling as if I was catching up from my trip to Michigan. It wasn’t all bad, though. I found that this coming week marks the end of my stint as an on-site proofreader, I started filling in the gaps in a piece due 9/4, and I visited several charming wineries in North Jersey for another wine piece. One in particular — run by the cutest family ever — captured my heart. We started with a tasting (during which we kept being offered homemade cheesecake) and were then invited out back to the site of their small, winemaking operation. Owner Gene Ventimiglia then gave us a small lesson in winemaking, even offering to let us taste some of the wine in the barrels. After experiencing the best zinfandel that I have ever tasted, the family invited us to stay for their bbq, and even let us walk amongst the grape vines. Such a nice day!

And this is why I love story research.
