Over at The Sixteen 600 Blog, Sam Coturri writes about how his parents found love in the vineyard:

In a twist of fate worthy of a great novelist, Arden, a young transplant from New Jersey, had just moved to the top of Moon Mountain and was looking for work. She heard that some guy named Phil Coturri was running a harvest crew, so she showed up at Val’s property to work the pick. That afternoon, Val sent Phil and Arden to a remote section of the vineyard, where the oldest vines were. The pair only filled two boxes of grapes all afternoon, but Val clearly knew something before anyone else did.
