In 1973, Donna DeYoung gifted Michael Lucent with a wine making kit for his 18th birthday. Unfortunately, Donna never knew if Michael had made the wine because soon they parted as "first loves" often do-- never to meet again
Or, at least that's what Donna thought, until a mere 25 years later when Michael knocked on her door. She herself had just recently moved back to Wilkes-Barre, PA after living out of the area for the past several years. Life's circuitous folly led them back to each other, and yes, once again fell back in love; only this time, (so as to not let her slip through his fingers again), he married her! She gained not only a husband but also the love of his two amazing adolescent children as well.
Did Michael ever make the kit-wine? Actually he did. Was Donna responsible for his winemaking career? Maybe not--- though she'd like to think so. Michael's first winery was located in Duryea, PA--in his parents cellar. One day while enjoying a glass of wine with his Dad, he said, "Papa, we should make 'Dego Red' wine, just like Grandpa did.'" And so it began. In 1981Father, Son, and the entire family commenced making wine.
