and this initial sentence–

“On March 9th, 2015, three objects were reportedly seen in the skies over the Borracho Todos los Tiempos Vineyards.”

I guess I’m in a silly mood.

On March 9th, 2015, three objects were reportedly seen in the skies over the Borracho Todos los Tiempos Vineyards.

06:45– the objects passed over the vineyards. Because of fog, their exact configuration could not be made out. Some observers reported the object with the single light as a sphere, and the other two as disks.

07:05– the objects hovered over the vineyards. A red light swept the area, north to south. Everyone touched by the light lost consciousness.

07:37– stricken observers at the vineyard began to regain consciousness.

Shortly thereafter it was discovered that most of the vineyards’ stock of wine was gone. One hundred gallon casks stood empty, and all bottles had been removed from the vineyards’ wine-cellars, except for five bottles of pink champagne and a single bottle of Gewürztraminer.

A cryptic inscription burned into the floor of the main tasting room was eventually translated as, Thanks, pay you back later.

Moral: didn’t anyone understand naming a vineyard “Borracho Todos los Tiempos” would be an invitation?

  2. This story made me smile. 🙂 The name of the place was a bit of an invitation, wasn’t it? I love that they left the pink champagne the Gewürztraminer – definitely connoisseurs!
