When Julie Denton was young, her Great-Aunt Saviana would send her out to the yard, basket in hand, to pick whatever plums, peaches, apples, strawberries, and wild grapes happened to be ripe. The hand-picked fruits were pressed and placed into Saviana’s large ceramic demijohns where they eventually became Saviana’s famous fruit wine. On bottling day, neighbors, friends, and family would show up with homemade foods for a potluck while everyone pitched in to bottle – and taste – these country wine creations. Though too young to drink the resulting wines herself, Julie distinctly remembers the sense of love and camaraderie on these special days. It is that sense of friendship and fun she and her husband Jeff Brown hope to bring to Cedar Hill.
