Interview with Malvie!
Hands down King Ferry Winery’s most spirited employee is Malvie. She is certainly the only gleefully employed almost 97 year-old that I have ever met, so, naturally, I wanted to know her key to long-lived happiness. In just a forty-five minute discussion we covered everything from growing up in the 20s, to WWII efforts at home, to new slang! She is delighted to learn everyday and was even excited to learn the word “blog.”
Malvie is the first face you will see at big events happily welcoming and directing you to the tasting room. On less busy days, she also can be found in our shipping area building shipping crates.
One of the qualities that stands out to me the most about Malvie is her openness. She has no reservations when discussing her life. Below is a video of the recent interview that will give you a small window into her amazing life. You really have to meet Malvie to feel her energy and contagious optimism. Join us this Saturday for our Harvest Festival and you will get to talk to her yourself!
