Cowper came by winemaking in a most unusual manner. After earning his Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology, he moved to Albuquerque and got his broker's license as a REALTOR. He met his wife who was a graduate student in linguistics at UNM. They wound up taking a wine appreciation class together which ignited his technical interest in wine.
There are also lots of bunnies and lizards at Oak Mountain. It’s a dog’s paradise. I must say their lizards are too fast for me and their bunnies disappear as soon as I approach. (It must be those darn jingling bells around my neck that warn them.) But I will not give up.
