“Beaujolais” – Hill Country Beaujolais, CGC
November 17,1993 – April 2, 2008

Beaujolais the Bouvier ruled with iron will,

All of her children bow to her still…

She and Tatt created this place,

Their kids bringing all of us face to face…

She was original, she was unique,

Always a presence-even in sleep…

When the family was gathered, she worked the crowd.

Whatever she did she made us proud…

…of a natural-eared girl, a little low and long,

But regal of carriage and oh! so sound…

Not for the show ring, though she liked to pretend…

She proved her worth-her kids in the end.

A small dynasty she left us bearing her name,

We’ll nurture and protect-that is part of her fame…

So, for now we say in Heaven’s her berth.

We were blessed to have her for her time on earth.

With much love, Betty Bassio, Stacy Bass, & Megan Nickelson
