Cedar Ridge Vineyard
We started our time at Cedar Ridge Vineyards and Distillery in the afternoon when we walked the vineyard with Jay Pietkiewicz, the Cedar Ridge winemaker. Our videographer Craig Lemire Tierney was on hand to film us speaking with Jay and our friend, the artist, Miriam Alarcon Avila took some great pictures as well. It was great to learn about the attention that is paid to the grapes in order to make a great wine, while sipping some of the fruits of his labor (pun intended.) Then we set up and played a sweaty, raucous three hour gig to a couple hundred people on one of the most beautiful nights of the summer. What a gorgeous setting! Thank you Cedar Ridge!
Look for an upcoming post reflecting on our conversation with Jay and sharing a schedule of activities related to our newest project, All Recipes Are Home #iacgrantee #iowaarts
