Claude and Claudia Gahard moved out to the Key Peninsula in 1992 and started Trillium Creek Winery. The couple splits the labor, with Claude handling the winemaking and giving visitors tastings and Claudia doing all the “outside work” of maintaining the grapes and leading vineyard tours along with Champ — or Champagne — a rescued 13-year-old golden retriever-bloodhound mix who is her constant and faithful companion and the winery’s mascot.
