The Black Cat


"Of all God's creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the lash.  That one is the cat.  If man would be crossed with a cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat."  Mark Twain

Black Cat Vineyard is named for an intrepid and sociable feral black cat who settled on the property. Black Cat, as he was eventually (and appropriately) named, became Tracey’s steadfast companion in the long days and months she spent developing and planting the estate vineyard. He became a loyal and beloved member of the family and upon his passing, inspired us to adopt and care for other feral cats....not all black....but all wonderful in their own very individual ways.
