Lawrence Dunham Vineyards Notebook 2007

Thanksgiving 2007
We host the first annual Thanksgiving Celebration with family and friends at Lawrence Dunham Vineyards.
We begin work on the master plan for the vineyards.

September 2007
Property closed and we own 40-acres that will become Lawrence Dunham Vineyards.

We opened a bottle of Vieve Cliquot Brut Champagne because we made the final decision to accept the
contract on the 40-acre property that will be home to our new vineyards.

More problems with the offer on the property we want to purchase. We started looking at another property
across the road. It is also 40 acres, with a building and home on it.

Initiated the appraisal process on the 40-acre property we are hoping to purchase.

We completed the contract to purchase our desired 40-acre property.

We are really excited about the prospect of buying the property and starting a vineyard.
We opened a great bottle of Rosenbloom and discussed the potential name of the winery
and we came up with Lawrence Dunham Vineyards.

July 2007
First visit to Keeling Schaefer Vineyards to see our friends Jan Schaefer and Rod Keeling.
Toured their property and tasted their wines and we were extremely impressed. On the way
home we decided to come back to Cochise County near them to see if we can buy some land
to hold onto for a potential vineyard site.
