Bits from Brambleberry

Welcome to Bits from Brambleberry! From wine to weddings and farm to garden, we’re sharing the latest news and stories — sprinkled in with a bit of humor and storytelling.

Our blogs will display our variety of interests on many topics, which is how we ended up with such a diverse lifestyle. We’re fortunate to have met so many fascinating guests and customers over the years, which has made us all the richer for the experience.

Chris spent more than 30 years in the newspaper business telling stories and still writes a weekly column. He will share some of his stories and thoughts whenever the writing itch needs to be scratched.

Sherry is passionate about gardening, cooking and being in touch with Mother Nature. She is also an avid reader, part of her lifelong quest to never stop learning.

We hope you enjoy these stories.
