Meet Tucker

Two weeks ago I went to the Organic Conference in St. Helena where Napa's organic growers go for their annual knowledge fest...there were vendors, speakers, academics, and a lot of the top vineyard managers and winemakers.

One of the presentators, herdsman Kelly Mulville of Holistic Agriculture, focused on bringing back animals to agriculture, focusing on how to use sheep more frequently in the vineyard to reduce labor.

I happened to stand in the lunch line next to Kelly and said I'd only seen one winery that used draft horses in California - and that's Diane DiRicco's up in Lake County (where she keeps rescued Percherons).

Kelly said, "Pam, Spottswoode's got one right here. Turn around." And so it is. Meet Tucker.
