How we got into it....
Bob and his good friends, Gordon Sprague and Steve Hubbard, started making amateur wine together 10 years ago. Steve, who was a football coach at a local high school, owned a sheep that walked funny so they named it Crazy Legs. They all agreed that if they ever started a commercial wine label, they would call it Crazy Legs, since "legs" also represents the wine that streaks down the sides of a wine glass.
Steve passed away in 2006 and Bob decided to pay tribute to his friend on his first wine label. If you look closely at the front of the label it says "option approved by Coach Hubbard".
