After many comments of “Where has your blog gone? I’ve noticed you haven’t posted in over a year.” And a lovely dispute with the other half of this adventure, we are back to posting with (hopefully) consistency. The tides change at AmByth, and they seem to change weekly. The undercurrent is a huge driving force internally (as in the day-to-day functions) for the 5 of us working here and implementing our man-forces, but sometimes I think  they are trivial and have nothing to do with the interests of those not in the heart of the action. But alas, so many of you have voiced otherwise, and Thank You for this.  And jsut for you:  a little snippet of something to smile about; this letter was tucked into our “inbox” over Easter weekend–farming is a spiritual practice for us, as is making wine and sharing wine and hopefully this testifies to that. Connections that could be considered “lost”, are indeed not.

Good morning. My name is _______. I am not sure if I am contacting the correct person or not. About 5 years ago my wife and I were in Costa Rica celebrating our anniversary at Los Suenos. We were looking at property and were invited in to look at a couple’s new home they had just built. They shared a glass of wine from their winery with us. By any chance, was this you and your wife? I feel terrible for forgetting their name and the name of their wine. I recalled the wine being organic. I researched organic wineries on line and came across your website for, Ambyth Estate. The picture of you and your wife looks just like the nice couple I mentioned before. If you do not own a home in Costa Rica, and have no idea about what I am talking about, I sincerely apologize for wasting your time.

My wife and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary and I thought it would be neat to find that wine that we had when we celebrated our 5 year anniversary. Like I said, if I have the wrong person, please forgive me, and thank you for your time.

P.S. You can always check in with us on Facebook or Twitter, we’re over there quite a bit…
