Miss Molly, the silver-coated green-eyed Môreson Weimaraner, is now a world famous star. The Miss...
Môreson holds the most special place in my heart. I, along with my three siblings, grew up here. The four of us spent years playing farmer on our plastic tractors, some of us clearly more genetically suited to this role than others.
We lived by a few simple rules: if it was high it was meant to be climbed; if it was a fruit or looked vaguely edible it was meant to be eaten; and if there was even a ray of sunlight we'd still be out exploring every part of Môreson.
The four of us have long outgrown the plastic tractors. I've graduated to real-life farming equipment. My brothers - Blake and Dane - have replaced man-made tractor noises with our global wine sales. And my sister, Charley (our resident free spirit), has (for now) managed to elude the family business.
When the four of us get together on the farm (which doesn't happen as often as we wish it did) we're reminded of just why we love Môreson so much. It is a place children spend hours splashing around the water features and exploring, just like we did so many years ago. It is a farm where families' lounge over long lazy lunches. It is a winery where wines are patiently and lovingly crafted from vines that have grown for years. It is our home and we feel privileged to be able to share it with you.
Welcome to our family farm,
