In Memory of Ruth Young

On the morning of April 23, Bending Branch staff and volunteers planted a new block of Camminare Noir vines at the Bending Branch Estate Vineyard. Dr. Bob made remarks about the vineyard and the symbolism of new life right after the vineyard was planted. Unknown to Dr. Bob, his mother passed around the time of those remarks. In her honor, the new block of Camminare Noir will be dedicated to Mrs. Ruth Young.
