An agrarian magister to Lady Hill proprietors, Elaine and Jerry Owen, Wendell Berry was the inspiration for the family to start converting ground to Organic 15 years ago. He continues to poetically inspire us as we strive to steward this piece of earth into the next generation. Hosting one of the only community screenings of Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry, in the Pacific Northwest, we are now even more inspired to move our legacy forward in a meaningful way.
Indoors or out, we gather at Columban Hall. This past August, we were blessed to host Minister of Wine and Maestro of Voice, Marcus Hanson, as he performed an aria in the open air on the South Patio.
What can you expect if you view the 2017 Solar Eclipse at Lady Hill?
At 10:18 am, approximately 10 seconds of totality. During the partial eclipse from 9:05 am - 11:38 am, expect a beautiful show of crescent shaped shadows filtering through the trees.
Sunrise that morning will be at 6:21 am. Our Columban Hall tasting room is the building just east of Sineann, where the marker is on the map below. Standing outside, looking south, you view the fields of the farm and the path of the sun. The gold line from the marker indicates the direction we'll look to the sun at the time of the eclipse - 10:18 am.
Reserve a spot at our Return to the Light Viewing and Brunch and join us for a toast to totality!
Dear Local Food and Drink Friends,
Elaine and I wanted to get the word out to the community about a film, a "portrait" of Wendell Berry, that we will be hosting at our winery located on my family's 6th generation farm near St Paul.
I have heard Berry speak, and have been listening to his quiet, sane voice since I was a college student in the '70s. Some of my friends visited him on his Kentucky farm back then as well. He has been an agrarian magister to both Elaine and me and was the inspiration for us to start converting ground to Organic 15 years ago. He continues to poetically inspire us as we strive to steward this piece of earth into the next generation.
We are stoked to have the opportunity to share this screening; please feel free to pass on to other eaters, readers, drinkers, and thinkers! Tickets here.
Jerry and Elaine Owen
