Wine bottling at RainSong Winery

My lovely organization does fundraisers in order to do the great work that we do!  Last weekend RainSong Vineyard let us come over and bottle wine as a fundraiser.  It is a great event and a ton of fun, all in a beautiful, Oregon setting.

One of the things we love about Eugene, and Oregon really, is that we can drive about 20-30 minutes out of town and be in the wilderness.  Here are a few shots from this weekend - which was definitely memorable!

But then....

A storm hit!  There was driving rain and the wind was quite strong.  It ended up blowing over trees and power lines and....

then we had to finish our job in the dark.

It was beautiful, memorable and makes me happy that I get to be part of this great organization!

And thanks again to RainSong for their great support!
