Triple R Lawncare’s crew helps homeowners make the most of their free time by handling landscaping chores Monday through Saturday. Their landscapers can resculpt the face of existing designs by trimming back overgrown bushes, or transform a space by planting new shrubbery. Fine edging tools and fertilization keep lawns in verdant condition, and weed control products nix invasive greens while remaining eco-friendly and pet-safe. Each visit by Triple R includes a free sprinkler-system inspection where applicable, helping homeowners keep water flowing to prized flowers or topiary replicas of their city councilmen.
The six generations of winemakers known as the Ehlers family have endured more than their fair share of trials and tragedies?from the loss of beloved patriarchs to a legal dispute over the name on their wine labels. Still, they've persevered, building a legacy that began in 1921 while fueled by two motives?a love of family and a passion for making wine. Now known as E2 Family Winery, their facility oversees more than 500 acres of vineyards dedicated to the growing of red and white California grape varietals. Once harvested, these grapes are processed in small batches to make eight styles of wine that include cabernet
sauvignon, zinfandel, and pinot grigio. The most unique of these comes from grapes grown on just 4 acres: a Portuguese-style verdelho, one of only a few made in the United States. And yet it's not just the winery's products that are unique?a GAI bottling system is a marvel in its own right. The system labels, plugs, and vacuum seals bottles with both synthetic and natural corks at a rapid speed, producing up to 2,000 cases a day, enough to supply a bottle to every household in the state or to keep Dionysus's next house party going for a few more hours.
