This is an invitation to you, our close friends and supporters, to participate in
a special project with us and
to be a part of our community as we take a big step for
us personally and for
big table farm.
We have decided it’s time to
BUILD A WINERY for
big table farm wines, right here on the farm. This will be a place
where we can make the wine close at hand. We believe this will give us
even more control over the quality of the wines, and will be an
important step in building big table farm. We are daring to follow the
As non-traditionalists, we are thinking outside of
conventional financing to build this dream. We have put together a
special package that we believe will bring you value and joy, as well as
make you part of our FOUNDERS CIRCLE. Your participation will leave your names on the big
table farm winery permanently, and make you a special part of the big
table farm community.
THE OFFER –
A six pack of 2012 Magnums which will include 5 of our vineyard
designate Pinot Noirs. The 6th Magnum will be our “founders reserve”,
one special barrel that Brian will choose from the entire 2012 vintage
that we will bottle into magnums for this specific purpose. This magnum
will have a label that, true to big table farm form, will feature a
piece of my art - that will also be made into a limited edition letter
press print. As many of you know, we have not sold any magnums in the
past, bottling only a few magnums each year only for special causes.
In addition to the wine
and art, we will be throwing a big table farm feast – July 2014 -- big
table style – for you, our founders, to celebrate the opening of the
winery, and to thank all of you that have made this possible.
Your FINANCIAL PARTICIPATION of $1700 will build the WINERY
We are excited and a little nervous as we take this
leap, but we believe in our hearts that this is the right next step and
are excited to be able to open the doors to you all when we complete it.
Thank you for being part of our story, and we hope we
get to count you in our circle of founders and raise a glass with you to
Clare and Brian
