Lasseter Family Wine

Here's a different story on John Lasseter that does not involve animation. It is his, and his wife's involvement in winery.

Nancy remembers the joyful, back-breaking work as if it were yesterday — the shoveling of zinfandel bunches into the back of a truck, the hand pressing, the bees.

“I’ll never forget her coming home completely splattered with red wine and the look on her face,” John said. “She was so excited. Wow, okay, I thought, now I want to do this.”

By 1997, they bottled up enough zinfandel and a Bordeaux blend to print out Lasseter Family Winery labels to give out as Christmas gifts and that was that — a new family business was born.
Hum.. back-breaking work is not my idea of a "joyful" memory, but OK.

So, anyone has ever tasted any wine from the Lasseter winery? I don't think I've ever come across it in supermarkets and speciality store so far. But then again, I wasn't looking for it.
