  • Winter's Nectar: The sweetest taste born in an Up North winter is harvested at daybreak on a 17-dgree December morning. Our intrepid wine reporter is there to share the moment and clip some frozen grapes herself.
  • The Christmas Gift: His father had recently died, so 14-year-old Tony took it upon himself to round up a grouse and a pick for the holiday feast.
  • A Sausage-Makers Craft: He'd had three heart attacks. He was depressed. He saw a dim future. Then Brian Neff started making sausage again, and his life was saved. We all can benefit.
