Why LEANING COW?

Of course, we like the idea that at first view, it is open to your individual interpretation. However there are several reasons why we named our wine "LEANING COW".

Firstly, when harvest is finished we open the vineyard gates and our cattle are free to graze the vines. We noticed, they make a beeline for the juicy berries that were missed during harvest - they lean in to get their luscious reward (not to mention their healthy dose of Resveratrol). Needless to say, we have very HAPPY COWS. The only downside for our cattle is every night, around 10 pm, a howling Easterly wind kicks in and as a result...everything in the vineyard is on the lean - including posts, vines, cattle, people etc. Ironically this cooling night wind is the secret to our great tasting wine.

Further confirmation that this was the right name for one of our Coe&Co wines was: - for years as we drove into the vineyard, we had noticed a burnt stump leaning against the fence of the vineyard. We would always laugh because the stump resembled (with a little imagination) a black Angus cow, sitting on her backside, leaning casually against the fence with one knee bent - as if she was sipping a glass of wine while enjoying the view! This stump always put a smile on our face - who wouldn't want to be that leaning cow!!

Finally…there has also been the odd occasion when friends (okay -us too) have been known to be on the lean after a few glasses of our wine - I dare say there are a few of you out there who can relate to this version of the "LEANING COW"!!!

PERFECT - LEANING COW was born.

To us LEANING COW encompasses all of these things and ultimately represents family, friends and fun times in good company (even if it does sometimes involve a little leaning!)

斜牛"的由来

当然,我们希望在看到这个名字的时候,你可以有自己的理解,但我们把葡萄酒命名为"斜牛"是有原因的。

 

首先,我们会在葡萄收获之后,打开葡萄园的大门,让牛群自在地享用葡萄藤。我们注意到,它们会径直地走向我们在收获期间错过的多汁浆果,向前倾斜着身子享受这甘美的味道(这里且不说有利身体健康的白藜芦醇)。不用说,我们的奶牛是快乐的。对它们唯一不好的是每天夜里10点钟左右,总有一阵东风呼啸而来,结果葡萄园里的一切,包括邮箱、葡萄树、牲畜、人等都是倾斜的。而颇具喜剧意味的是,这清凉的晚风正是葡萄酒极佳口感的秘密所在。

 

另外一个证明这个名字适合科库葡萄酒的原因是:多年前,当我们驶进葡萄园时,我们注意到一个烧焦的树桩,斜倚着葡萄园的围墙。每次看到这个树桩,我们都会不由自主地笑起来,因为它很像一只安格斯黑牛(需要一点想象力),悠然地坐在地上,单膝弯曲,斜倚着围墙——就好像她在一边喝着美酒,一边欣赏风景!这个树桩总是让我们面带微笑——谁不想成为那只悠然的牛呢!!

 

最后一个原因是,偶尔会有朋友(好吧,我们也一样)在喝了几杯葡萄酒之后,身子就会斜起来——我敢说你们没有几个人能想到这个版本的"斜牛"!!!

 

完美——"斜牛"这个名字就这样诞生了。

对我们而言,"斜牛"这个名字就是一切,代表着家庭、朋友以及我们在一起度过的美好时光,虽然有时候会"斜"一下。
