That is why each fall, David and Esperanza Gurule embrace dozens of friends, family mem- bers and volunteers to their La Esperanza Vineyard and Winery to help them pluck plump purple and golden bunches of a wide variety of grapes for the next year's vintage. La Esperanza har- vested the East of this year's crop on Oct. 12, with 13 volunteers. "We really couldn't survwe without them," David said. "It is so wonderful that everyone wants to come out and help us. But we try to make it fun too." Fun is right; for services ren- dered, Esperanza serves up beau- tiful breakfasts, a delightful snack and a final lavish lunch for the couple's many helpers: barbecue, summer squashes and sprouts. green chile, cheddar potatoes and red chile chicken, not to mention an abundance of desserts and the ubiquitous grapes. In the fields, between rows and rows of wnes. volunteers chat and get to know one another or just enjoy'the Mimbres Valley scenery. Some volunteers don't need to make acquaintances, though, because many one-time volunteers become repeat custom- ers. "Oh, we've been coming out here for years" said Reba Spain. 81. as she zoomed along the rows with her practiced hands. According to David, Spain took part in all seven harvest days this year with friends Isabella Salas, Shirley Sova and Debbie Majestic. On the final harvest day, the volunteers were set to picking St. Vincent grapes. Small, and such a deep purple they're nearly blue, this year's St. Vincent crop will become 2015's Born in Space, a signature, award-winning variety only from La Esperanza. The pro- cess takes about a year. If anyone is interested, there will be more grapes next year. And, rest assured. David and Espy will be there ready to embrace any- one who wants to help. State Police checkpoints, planned for Nov. Submitted by STATE of NM DEPT of PUBLIC SAFETY/Albuquer- que State Police will be conduct- ing Sobriety Checkpoints, Satu- ration Patrols, and Registration. Insurance and Drivers' License Checkpoints in all New Mexico co,unties during the month of November 2014. Our efforts continue to show a significant reduction in alcohol related fatalities. This is attributed to the continued media attention and intensive advertising. These checkpoints are helping to change society's attitude about drinking and driving. People are choosing to not drink and drive. This is the biggest step in keep- ing impaired drivers from crash- ing into our friends and families. Hundreds of lives could be saved each year if every driver had the courage to make the right de- cision. David Gurule stirs up the fermenting juice from an earlier batch of this year's St.Vincent crop. About a year from now, it will be ready to be poured into a bottle and labeled Born in Space.
