There is a lot of talk these days about living your life with passion. What does that mean? For us, it means creating an environment for our guests where they feel comfortable, at home, among friends, welcome, relaxed, and far away from the maddening crowd. We have wonderful guests stay with us and we love to learn about their lives and for them to get to know us. It is our intent to help our guests forget about everything else except themselves even if just for an evening or a day. We love to share our hill and create that environment for our guests.
We also have a passion for farming and growing grapes. Grapevines are extrodanary plants very similar to roses. So we farm the vineyard very similar to how your would farm 30,000 champion rose bushes, caring for each individually. And what a thrill it is every fall to reap the rewards of all that hard work that started back in January.
And then there is the wine, the benefit of farming such a succulent fruit. What a reward it is to open a bottle of wine, pour a taste to one of our guests, explain to them what it took to grow that fruit and make that particular wine, and for their eyes to light up with delight and approvals as if to say “Job well done”.
That is our passion at Youngberg Hill Vineyards & Inn.
