Father Brandon Ware, left, and Father Bill Kraft, both from St. Anne's Catholic Church in Lodi, bless the grapes at Van Ruiten Winery on Sunday, Sept. 16, 2012. The ceremony also included the blessing of grapes from Klinker Brick Winery and Grady Family Vineyards. Ware read a selection from the Book of Deuteronomy that focuses on God allowing people to seek His help to do their work properly. In this case, it's the grape harvest. Ware sprinkled holy water on the grapes.
