These Boots were made for Walking (in the vineyard) !!!



When I started Turtle Vines 4 years ago I invested in a good pair of Red Wing boots.  I have used them in all seasons and they have been very good to me and my feet!  But, all good things must come to an end, as they have outlived their usefulness.  Truth be told I should have gotten a new pair last year as my feet got wet this last winter.

Interestingly, the soles (see picture below) look like they had some sort of chemical attack, which is very strange since I have been farming organically for 4 years.  Maybe they just had to many miles on them from walking up and down the rows, which as they say, is the best fertilizer a vineyard can have!
