Dan & Kristina Limoges, an adventure in startup vineyard farming in North Georgia.

Good news and bad news! The contractors are finishing up the grading today, the last day! Finally! What was supposed to take 1–2 weeks took 1.5 months, some of it weather related.

That’s the good news. The bad is that they didn’t complete the project scope. The planting area, which…


Hi Everyone! If you follow us on instagram you will have seen all the baby chicken spam over the last two weeks. I can’t believe they’re almost two weeks old! We are the proud parents of 6 beautiful chicks: Waffles, Beeps, Tiger Lily, Buttermilk, Chipmunk and Pigwidgeon.


I can’t believe August is almost over and we get to usher in cooler temps soon and changing leaves and our birthdays! Did you know Dan and I are two years and 1 day apart? This isn’t so unique to me however as my sister Stefanie is two years and…


We’ve been living at Limoges Cellars for almost 1 whole month!

We finished the home build “officially” (i.e. were granted occupancy) but we have LOTS of little cosmetic things left to do like trim, baseboards, beam wrapping, staining the deck areas, pantry doors, closet doors, painting here and there and…

Spring in the vineyard

It’s been a minute since we’ve given a vineyard and house update so here we go!

Vineyard:

After planting day our first priorities were to get grow tubes on the vines, water each with a gallon of water once a week and watch for bud break…


I can’t tell you the stress leading up to this day to have everything ready and organized for a crew of 30 to plant grapes! Late nights of waiting on deliveries, getting posts in the ground, digging 2000+ holes (thanks Judy and Andre for driving all the way down from…


The madness is almost over for a minute! This crazy hectic month all culminates on April 3rd at planting day; are you signed up? I sent out an email with deets last week.

AFRAME:

We scheduled a framing inspection for tomorrow… we got so swamped in the vineyard that the…
