  1. Mark as you know that was and still is the plan for Bauer-Kearns vineyard. for five years now all bauer-kearns wines are estate growen. In the first three years we sold wines under the Big M brand that came from other locations. Due to the 2-4-D damage we received in 2012 we may have to this year and for several years bring back the big M brand to stay in business. You saw the damage and you have noted the recent article pointing out the wisconsin problem.
