Our Great Grandfather Percival was an entrepreneur of his time. He started the first family winery during the depression, which along with some of his vineyards, still stand proudly today. A well-known writer and poet, his hardworking nature and perseverance continues to inspire us. Cheers Percy, this one’s for you.
