I believe in the farm and the grain, in the deep soil and the clear waters. I put my faith in barrel-splintered hands and let my trust flow along copper courses. I hear the echo of my conviction in the pop of the bottle and the bellring of my glass meeting yours. I sip to a higher standard. I choose good company. I belong to the Guild.
