Last week, vineyard manager Shawna Mull shared her harvest playlist of favorite artists and song that keep the team motivated during busy crush pad activity that takes place after the morning grape harvest. This week, Fence Stile winemaker Stephen Dollar shares a few of the many songs below that keep the Bose speakers humming during crush. Stephen has eclectic tastes that make listening fun and an adventure on the crush pad and in the wine production facility.
After a morning harvest and lunch, volunteers are invited to observe the crush pad, learn how the grapes are processed, and perhaps taste some free run juice. Learn more about volunteering for an upcoming harvest on Sunday, Sept. 24th and Oct. 1st by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Most of these songs have no specific meaning other than I am a romantic," said Stephen. "Everything I listen to seems to be about love or my wife. I like EDM (electronic dance music) and old country, so there is a big jump around throughout my music days. My dad's favorite song was "Waiting for a Train." My grandpa was the singin' salesman because of his yodeling technique, so Jimmie Rodgers just speaks for my family."
