Drink wine, and you will sleep well. Sleep, and you will not sin. Avoid sin, and you will be saved. Ergo, drink wine and be saved.
Medieval German saying

RockSide Vineyards is Ron and Lynn Rutter’s family-owned vineyard and winery. I’ve been watching them “grow” since 2007 and I must say a very pleasant sight/site as you drive by on Rt. 37.

Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.

On a personal note; thinking myself a “chemist” I ventured into “winemaking.” Over several years I made a lot of wine for personal use. Some of the wine was good and some was bad but none of it was wasted…LOL.. One summer I made a few gallons of wine using red raspberries and it was excellent. Over the years I developed a severe allergy to wine/alcohol so I no longer can enjoy a good glass of wine, but I can enjoy the beauty of a vineyard and appreciate the love/work involved in making a good wine.
