Vinography Images: Where Wine Comes From


Where Wine Comes From
While no doubt unremarkable, and even boring to those who make their living by growing wine grapes, I don't tire of seeing great pictures of the raw materials that go into my bottles. In this case, several clusters of grapes (what look to me like Pinot Noir) sheltering in the shade and reflected light of a hot day. -- Alder Yarrow

I have grown up in wine country and i never get tired of looking at vineyard pictures. Some of my favorites are pictures taken in late fall when the leaves turn a beautiful gold and red.

Just breath taking during that time of year!

Just for informations' sake: when the vineyards turn red, it means they have virus that prevents the grapes from ripneing properly. The color is very romantic, but the result, from the winemakers' standpoint, is not so good!

Reminds me of when we thinned the leaves out by hand at Tin Cross the beginning of last summer. It gave you a perfectly clear view of the grapes, sheltered by the canopy left above. I don't tire of it, either. Not yet, at least.

Add me to the list of people who never tire of vineyards and the different views they offer through the seasons.
