New Day #291

Got sticky with lesbians.

Real sticky.

Because the owners of Hip Chicks Do Wine invited me to Squishfest 2008, where I learned, among other things, that you can make white wine from red grapes.

Who knew?

While I was disappointed I didn't get to stomp those grapes with my feet, I so admire these women. They had a dream of owning a winery and, against considerable odds, they've made it happen.

"This is my philosophy," said self-described Wine Goddess Laurie Lewis. "Most people go through their lives wishing they'd do something. Then they wake up and realize that they haven't done it." She shook a wrench for emphasis. "The worst thing that can happen is that you fail. And if you do, who the fuck cares?"

Here I am sticking grapes for a Pinot Noir into the press with self-described Wine Maven Renee Neely.

Am I correct in observing that the 'stache has left the building?

I did, in fact, know that white wine comes from red grapes. The color of the wine is determined by how long you leave the skins fermenting with the juice.

This may be the best advice ever! Smart friends you have.
