Construction Continues at Clermont Vineyards in Columbia County
This is Vasco and Antonia Meireles. Tony is the man with the plan, but Tony's "Man in Havana" is his cousin Vasco. Tony is an engineer. Vasco knows the many different aspects of construction. And Vasco is the winemaker. He knows grape growing. They work together building the winery, tending the vines, making the vines. Together they make a dynamic team. Up to now I have been remiss not to mention Vasco, even though he has been to my house. That stops now. Vasco is an important part of this operation. He and Tony are a team.
Here's Tony displaying fruit from last year's harvest. Soon, the wine they make, which is now used for family consumption, will be made for public consumption. They are aiming for Fall 2011. Sounds like a long way off, but it's closer than you think.
