Grace Branding Harvest Intern 2021 Grace Branding hails from Caro, Michigan, which is north of Detroit. She has worked as a server for fine dining restaurants and as a bartender. In December of 2020, Grace graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelor’s degree in social justice and community organizing. Since graduating, Grace has decided to take time to experience seasonal work before focusing on a career more in line with her social justice background. Grace says, “When deciding which wine region I wanted to harvest in, the FLX became an obvious choice. I wanted to work somewhere where the wine was seriously good without the people taking themselves too seriously. I wanted to be a part of making great wine but I also wanted to be a part of a team that can have fun, joke around, and enjoy the process. The FLX community and the Red Newt team has been an amazing place for me to learn and develop my knowledge of wine without judgement, but with compassion and encouragement.” When asked about her favorite varietal, Grace says, “Sauvignon Blanc! The wine is always crisp, acidic and refreshing. Ahhhhh!” When asked about her staple harvest snacks, she has several. Grace enjoys Guara almonds, dark chocolate peanut butter cups from trader joes, and Labatt Blue Lights. Local Hectorites need not fear, we have also caught her with a PBR in her hand too! Here music choices? Well, either 90s rap stars – Will Smith, Outcast, Snoop Dogg OR some serious queens of rap – Lizzo, Cardi B, Megan Thee Stalion! Grace also used her server experience to help out on Saturdays, which we greatly appreciated! Guests loved her fun, passionate spirit and we are so glad she joined the team for harvest! @the.grace.lakes #flxwine See less — at Red Newt Cellars.
