    Thunderstone Vineyard

    A reference to the shape of this vineyard site, thunderstones are ancient artifacts, oftentimes arrowheads, turned up in the soil from farmers' plows and regarded in folklore as having been cast to the earth from thunderbolts. In Scandinavia, thunderstones were frequently worshiped as family gods who kept off spells and witchcraft.
