How to Help Your Local Winery

A couple of years ago, my future husband and I were gifted with a bottle of wine from a small Arizona winery. It was delicious, and we were very impressed. About a month ago, my husband contacted the winery to join its wine club and ask whether we could visit. We secured an invite to the winery's planting party and, over Easter weekend, zipped down to Willcox to help Rob and Sarah Hammelman plant vines at Sand-Reckoner Vineyards.
