Getting Ready for the First Wine

As August comes closer, I have prepared my dress and the location for the first FIRST wine rite to Liber in honor of the Republic. I will be planting a grape vine on the property in Tuscany (along the Via Cassia, of course!). As the time comes nearer, I will let you know how our little grape vine is doing.

How is your grape vine doing by the way? Hopefully the Gods looked kindly upon you honouring the Republic and your grape vine is flourishing.
The gods command me to sanctify my every action, and I obey them with all my soul, and they assure me of great benefits from my enterprise, if only I persist.

Sorry for the late response - the grape vine was planted and I hope is doing well! Unfortunately, I had to plant it in Greece since I could not bring it back with me to Italy - but I have gotten another one and am waiting for spring to plant it somewhere -- hopefully on the Aventine! I hope it makes it through the winter. (:

May the gods and ancestors smile upon you!
