Picking berries for a good cause

I love to pick berries. So it was a pleasant task to spend a couple of evenings picking raspberries and black currents at the farm of Living Sky Winery, a new venture near Perdue. Owners Sue Echlin and Vance Lester hope to market their first bottles of fruit wine later this year. They're working with award-winning winemaker, Dominic Rivard, so the prospects are excellent.

Here's a bit of a bio of Dominic found online:

Dominic has won hundreds of awards and medals in national and international wine competitions.This has included the best desert wine in Canada in 2007 and various best of show awards in fruit wine and desert wine categories.Over the last decade, Dominic has been busy running numerous wine production and exportation projects for wineries in Canada, USA, Italy, Spain, Chile, Taiwan, Korea, Japan as well as China.
