Last Saturday Craig Kimberly and I filimed the Mathews family’s traditional “Stomping of The Grapes “Vino Making Extravaganza, for an upcoming cooking show segment we are working on together. Yesterday Neil and Bridgette Mathews invited us back to their home to shoot part two of their wine making process.
Cheers to Neil and Bridgette Mathews, and family for sharing their family tradition and wine making secrets with us! It truly has been a pleasure and we look forward to filming part 3 later this year!
Yesterday Gloucester residents, Neil and Bridgette Mathews, hosted their 4th Annual Wine Stomping Extravaganza! Family and friends gathered at their home here in Gloucester, for an afternoon of Old Fashion Fun. It was a day of…Family, Friendship, food , and of course lots of homemade “Vino.” Neil, “Head Winer” of yesterday’s festivities, led an assemble line of helpers through the first stages of wine making, while his wife Bridgett and their three beautiful daughters, Lindsey, Abbey, and Melodey, fixed an Italian style buffet lunch, which included several bottles of wine produced by the family last year. Neil and Bridgett are committed to producing wine “The Old Fashion way,” each step of the process is a labor of love done by hand. All 540 lbs. of imported Chilean Carmenere Grapes were carefully inspected, for mold and leaves, before the labor intensive work of plucking thousands of juicy plump grapes from their stems began. Dozens of sorted grapes were mounded in large trays, and transferred to a giant plastic stomping tub in the Mathews garage.
Thank you so much for your gracious invitation, and warm hospitality. We were honored to be apart of your family tradition and are truly grateful for allowing us access to your behind the scene’s Vino Making! It was a fantastic day! Grazie!
Get ready folks… GMG’s Craig Kimberley Master Videographer is working his magic with yesterday’s behind the scene’s footage of Vino Making, The Old Fashion Way …Stay tuned!
