Blessing the new fruits of the vine

Steven Wilde, pastor of First Presbyterian in Livermore; Lisa Maier, owner of Las Positas Winery; Chris Chandler, executive director of the Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association; and Rabbi David Katz of Congregation Beth Emek in Pleasanton participated in the Blessing of the Grapes at Las Positas Winery in Livermore on Tuesday morning.

"We are looking at a very good harvest so far -- a very cool season has resulted in slow, gradual ripening for optimal physiological ripeness and development," Ruby Hill winemaker Chris Graves told those assembled. "I'm very excited about the quality of the vintage at this point -- hopefully it stays that way."
