When vacation simply isn't enough

Ah vacation... back to reality It's really strange to be back after a week off. Strange because I'm tired, but my thoughts are still in the "I'll just take another nap this afternoon" mode even though that's really not a possibility today. Despite being 'on vacation', I still opened the winery on the Saturday and Sunday, albeit at reduced hours. Next year, I'll be hiring someone to watch the place for us... the driving back and forth was a bit much. We are still waiting for the word on whether we are allowed to sell wine to restaurants. The LCBO says it's an AGCO licensing issue and the AGCO say it's an LCBO selling issue. Am I alone in thinking we have way too many rules and that sometimes this means we don't get clear guidance on things? On other big news, we will have the honour of receiving a delegation from Finland in September! They approached us earlier this year to ask if they could visit. Looking very much forward to showing them around and talinking about our maple wine. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Louis Gaal is the winemaker (and spouse of the ever patient Claire Faguy) at Blue Gypsy Wines in Oxford Mills, Ontario Canada, 45 minutes south of Ottawa.
