Lynn Parrish, pictured above with some of her tomatoes, is one of our “behind the scenes” people that many of you haven’t had the opportunity to meet. She is David’s wife and Cecily’s mother. Lynn’s biggest role in the business is that she manages our properties. She is constantly making sure that things are looking clean and well managed. Many times you can find her working outside on one of our properties…weeding, chopping wood, clearing rubble, and even taking down structures. It’s all important to keeping our properties in prime condition. Before Ethan came on board, Lynn also assisted David on the wine making in 2009-2010. So, she is apart of the success of our award winning 2009 Reserve wines. Lastly, Lynn is also behind the design of the tasting room. She decorated it and designed the beautiful bar (the hooks for the ladies’ purses was her idea!). Needless to say…she is a talented woman that is full of strength and a willing spirit to support others especially her family. Here’s Lynn…
