My husband explained that Mistletoe is a parasite plant that attaches itself on trees and eventually kills them. So I was fascinated as to why this winery would call themselves Mistletoe vinyard. When I asked them they said that the whole hill used to be called Mistletoe hill due to the mistletoe in the area. Here is a picture of some mistletoe. See the red stuff hanging down off the tree?
Interesting hey :o)
