Perspective : 100 years ago, the richest person on the planet couldn't even dream of having access to the things We take for granted now. —We literally flush toilets with water cleaner than 80% of the world drinks. Let that sink in. Damn. We have unlimited entertainment, free information, you are holding one of the greatest computers in the world in your hands right now. Healthcare. There is literally a grocery store full of food waiting for you to choose what you would like to consume. We can pull out our phone and face time with anyone else on the entire planet. air-conditioning, paved roads, toothbrushes, the list is endless..... And statistically we are living at the safest point of our planets history. no it isn't perfect. It's a long way from perfect. But there is a list 5 miles long of what we can be thankful for. I needed to be reminded. I hope you didn’t. Happy thanksgiving.
Have a great time with your family and friends. We will.

NOW AVAILABLE — DIRECT LINK IN PROFILE. — No matter what you believe, A few things to consider. 1. Jesus Drank Wine - Sure did. +1 2. His first Miracle was turning water into it. 3. He did this, It was for a wedding. 4. It was for the third day of a non stop party. 5. His Mom asked him do it to keep the party going. Yea Mother Mary wanted to keep the party rolling after 3 days. 6. He got a solid Yelp out of it. “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.” — So to recap, Jesus Drank wine, at a party that he was at for 3 days, with his mom, Mother Mary, and when they ran out she, asked her son to do something about that problem to keep the party going. And it was the best. Think about it... I want to party With Jesus. What a guy. PEACE BE WITH YOU.
When your 9 year old - build like an anvil Son - gets a New jersey from @foxheadinc they kind of spoil him rotten. A lot of people work their whole lives to be a one name or a Symbol kind of person. This kid did it at 9. I guess “brick shithouse” didn’t fit across the shoulders. Yea I’m jealous.
The human being is meant to bear the burden of 24 hours -- no more, no less. If you live in the future, you will get anxious; if you live in the past, you will get depressed. Twenty four hours is all that you have to live in. Give up all the other burdens to God, to your cat, to the universe, to whatever - but the burdens of the past are not yours. The burdens of the future aren't yours either. Let them go. The day is your material. It's what's in front of you, it's the only thing that you have the power to change or to shape or to use. So use it well.
Flash back Friday - hey @grandmabriebrie aka Negasonic Teenage Warhead remember Charles? YouMemmmmbbberrrrr I love you.

THE OFFICIAL END OF HARVEST. What a long strange trip it’s been. Barreled down the last wine made this year. Seemed fitting to ride into the ground like the Kong on the atomic bomb from Dr Strangelove. Thank you our team of misfit professionals @bigtarwineco and @gregsaarloos @larrysaarloos @zachsantacruz @bradsaarloos @katylynnwoods @fallon_wynne and our @ohheyitslaurap and every single off the grid member of our team. Thank you to every person who makes this insanity worth every drop. Special thank you to @heathersaarloos and my kids @grandmabriebrie and Cash who deal with me and let me run. I am honored by every person we make this for. Best job I’ve ever had. #saarloosharvest #blessthishustle I need a drink.
Yesterday I was honored. I was able to spend about three hours with some of the greatest humans on the planet. As we shook hands to part I was given this. I will forever be grateful.
New Shirts : available next week.
My father caught me in our “Holy of Holies” signing bottles for special old vintage orders people have been placing. He started pulling out bottles and we talked about what happened with that wine. Every single one he touched we had a story about how hard that harvest was, something funny that happened, or just a ohhh that’s a good one. It was like flipping through a photo album of our life. An album we get to share with you. Our liquid love letters trapped in glass telling our stories. And now he and I have another one. This one. Thanks for the photos, the moment and the story Pop.
Sunday Morning Coming Down: — Hey, turn here, the girl I like is playing tennis at the school. Walked up to the chain link fence and she smiled at me. Felt like we were kids again... then my kid ran on the court and I was 40 again. She till looks like she is 18 and I always looked like I was 40. So we good.
A couple we like is getting hitched up in the House. Get here early. Before we have to kick you out to make way for the blushing bride.

Veterans Day. Come in and let us know. We got you. Thank you. Respect.
Soul, on Fire. That represents a pivotal moment in our harvest. That is our last tank of finished fermented grapes. We have loaded I️t into the press to crush the last of the soul from the skin. This is the point that I️t ceases being fruit and is only wine. We still have a distance to go before we are fully complete and harvest is officially over. But the handoff has been completed. All the effort in the field is has now been transformed fully and our farming has a shot at immortality in wine. I️ think of this point as a the death of the flesh and the assent of the soul. Thank you for going on this journey with us. We are humbled and honored by you letting us do this for you. #saarloosandsons #saarloosharvest #blessthishustle.
