In the near future, he also expects to
open an expanded production facility two
miles up the road from the tasting facility.
Visitors will be able to take a trolley to
the complex for tours that will shed light
on how employees turn out more than 40

voraciously, in front of a blazing fire in
his wood-burning fireplace, nibbling on
almonds and dried mangos before grilling
a steak and dishing up a salad.
Of course, he'll sip some wine with
that meal, too. But whether it's in a "prop-
er" wine glass is anyone's guess. ❑
