Alta Marfa

A Vineyard and Winery Estate in the Davis Mountains of West Texas.

24. Snow at Alta Marfa!

Things are really starting to look different out at the vineyard site. I spent the week of Thanksgiving in Marfa. I learned that I am deeply thankful for hydraulic machinery, without which, digging the 700' or so of ditch that I dug would've taken approximately 500 years to complete. 

 This ditch will hold a pipe carrying water from the well to the new water storage tank.

 The shiny new water tank! 28,000 gallons!

 That's a long ditch! It will hold the main water line that all the drip lines will come out of.

I have yet to see a live snake on the property, but this skin was over 4 feet long!

A good friend of mine joined me at Alta Marfa for the week, and we filmed an awesome music video for his upcoming musical release. The video isn't finished yet, but here is a little snip from the raw footage. The final video is gonna be really cool; I'll be sure to post the video on here when it's finished.

 Beards are good for the cold.

 Good thing I got this tank, otherwise there wouldn't have been any icicles!

 Everything is starting to come together. Here is a preview of the porch... and the view from the porch.

 All the snow made for one of the best sunsets I have ever seen!

 Marfa is a tiny town in the middle of nowhere and the food looks like this... weird right?

 The fence construction is underway. Gotta keep the deer from eating all the grapes!
