Jeff’s Corner

Howdy, Hola, and Hello

I was in the winery not long ago loving the smell of yeast and fermentation and fresh grape juice when I remembered a story about yeast I wrote a few years ago. So here it is again, one more time. The cute fable at the end was a story I told in my very first Jeff’s Corner, sometime in early 2010:

Jeff’s Corner

Hello, Hello, and Howdy

I’m going to turn back the clock to New Year’s Eve, 2009. We were at Brian’s house for his annual staff party (the staff was much smaller then), and Brian made an exciting announcement that Doug and Kelly were joining our team in January.  

I missed the preface to this and thought, what the crap, Doug and Kelly are the two Health Inspectors in Fredericksburg. In reality, Kelly is Brian’s sister, and Doug his brother-in-law. This began the metamorphosis into what GCV is today. Doug’s job was Operations Manager.
