This unique quilt design honors Mother Nature and her ‘critters’. The four corners of the quilt are traditional “bear paw” block designs and represent the four seasons. It was designed by Mike Wofford and painted by Jane Harris. Since the critters, especially the bear, play a major role in Wofford’s vineyard cycle, their harvest can be a surprise and challenge each year – surprise snow in May reduced the quantity of Nebbiolo grapes by 50%, and the bears love to nibble on the Merlot grapes. One rascal bear accidentally dumped 500 gallons of Cabernet Sauvignon! The family’s 15-year passion for creating beautiful wine reflects in the beauty of the vineyard and the breathtaking views of the Sierra Nevada. They say: “Come for the Wine, Stay for the View”.
