Ghost in the Vineyard

Night in the harvest vineyard

So Big Ag and his crew are waist-deep in harvest right now, and a strange little issue has come up. What is it, you ask? Three of his vineyard workers have reported there is a ghost in the vineyard known as Five Hills, where harvesting is now taking place. 

A ghostly man, dressed in white from hat to shoes, has been seen leaning up against the fence posts which stand at the end of each row of vines, standing and silently watching the harvest until he vanishes.

We know it's not a real human, as access to the vineyard is extremely limited, especially in this area which is literally miles away from the nearest road. And these workers are not of the ilk that would spoof and play games with each other. They're much too serious about their night's work and heading home to their comfortable beds on time at this point.

But it certainly fits with all the ghostly goings-on this time of year. Spooky! 


  1. How interesting! I wonder if his mom threatening stance suggests he used to do this work and likes to check in around harvest?

    1. If I had to take a guess, I'd say that's it, or maybe he used to own the property or something? But apparently he's very benign and just watches people, so I'd guess he's a former worker. It really is a lovely piece of land, so it makes sense he'd want to hang out there for eternity! Too bad he can't drink the wine though....
