A moment of silence

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the tragic loss of my girlfriends younger brother, Zachary this past week. It is a sobering reminder of just how fragile and fleeting life can be. My thoughts and prayers are with the Lane family and the community of Bushland.
Sincerely, Sean

A Shot Across The Bow

Hello everyone. We decided to utilize some of our idle time here to do a little page for the shop. We will not bore you with inane commentary about wine. We will however, comment on life, sports, music and occasionally wine.
