Even while Mother Nature flexes her muscle this weekend, our wine growers aren't overly concerned with the forecast.

Josh Bendick of Holly's Hill Winery in Placerville says the winter weather isn't likely to have a lasting effect on the grapes,

"Right now the vines are pretty dormant, so we're not concerned about the vines themselves, we're just concerned about the irrigation system, so that's all been drained, all the pipes around the winery have been drained," said Bendick.

He continued that even if there should be any significant snowfall, the plows and generator are tuned up to keep the pathway clear for those who need their wine fix:

"We have plenty of wine here to sell," he chuckled, "we can take care of peopel in that regard.

So, for now, it's business as usual at Holly's Hill.
