 "It's not done until it's done right"

As parents of teenagers, this term seems to echo throughout the house and our minds a lot these days. And I'm quite sure if one listens closely, there are still faint echoes from a generation ago that I suspect the grandparents hear quite clearly. Interestingly, these words are also constantly bouncing off of the Spartan winery walls in their own way all the time. The key is to listen.
