Bully Hill Winery
Bully Hill is actually owned by a Taylor of Taylor wine.
When the father died and left it to his sons they sold it. They both sat on the board. Greyton Taylor was not happy as they watered down the wine so he quit and purchased the land where Bully Hill now sits.
He produced his own wine and got sued by the new owners of Taylor.
He went to court and lost. He had to give all the family wine recipies to Taylor. He was ordered to take anything with Taylor name to town to the plant. He loaded everything up in a manure wagon and paraded it to town.
He also took his white goat with the name "Taylor" painted on it. They called and told him to come get his goat. He said you wanted everything Taylor...well his name is Taylor. He ended up going and getting the goat.
So the saying "they took my heritage, my family name, but they did not get my goat"
So the goat you see on the label of goat white and goat red is his goat Taylor.
Greyton draws all his labels and is a great artist. The Taylor goat label has the tongue of the goat (which sticks out of it's mouth) changed each bottleing and so if you take a stack of mixed labels and fan them like a deck of cards the tongue wags at you.
Now he also had hundreds of bottled wine to sell and again went to court and lost the right to use his name Taylor on the label. So he sent out flyers to the local college that there was a free party at his place all the wine you can drink all you had to do was bring a black marker.
The students sat and crossed out anything that said Taylor on the bottels and he was allowed to sell his wine.
The only Taylor you will see on his bottle that is allowed is the address. Greyton Taylor Drive.
This story was told to me by a student that came to help and never left, he used to do the wine tasting years ago in the old building.
So Dave you were very close and so you get the glass of wine.

We took an extra day so we just got home. What a great weekend. Lots of fun and great people, old friends and new ones! The boat ride and drift was a pisser. Then up to the track for 3 hot laps on the full 2.5 miles, what a blast that was. We can off the track and every single one of us had a grin from ear to ear!
Great job Dave, we have to make this one an annual thing!
