Jackson Pawlick 2001-2017

From John, November 1st, 2017

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our best dog ever, Ms Jackson Pawlick, vineyard and delivery assistant, hiking and running companion and source of endless entertainment for 16 years.

Although she had humble beginnings in Estacada, she was an Einstein of dogs.  She knew over 50 words, her favorite being “cheese” but she recognized many important phrases such as “go get son of a bitch” (her squeeky George Bush toy), lets go to the river,  the names of everyone in the family & the winery.  Jackson was a running phenom easily covering 5-6 miles in Forest Park if asked to do so.  She practiced yoga on command (down dog!), fetched the New York times every morning, but perhaps her coup de gras was “spazz out”, a amalgamation of 4 favorite tricks, spinning around, rolling over, speaking and finally downward dog.  More than anything she was a unique personality, a sweet soul, a loyal friend.

She was pre-deceased by her best friend, Guido and is survived by our new puppy Linus, Julian’s corgi P. Middy and the extended Paul-Wadsworth family.  We hope she is eating cheese in doggie heaven.

Navigating a Rainy Vintage

In 2019 significant rain fell early in the third week of September. So, when should we pick the grapes? Picking early will avoid botrytis infections but the fruit will be under ripe. Waiting through the rain will allow the fruit to ripen more fully but now risks inclusion of fungal infection.
