Vinography Images: Across the Valley

Across the Valley
This is a classic view of Chilean wine country, with gently rolling hills on the valley floor and the mountains and stark blue sky. I believe this is a view across the Carmenere vineyards of Casa Silva called Los Lingues, about 80 miles south of Santiago in the Colchagua valley -- Alder Yarrow

Steve,

Thanks for the comments. Looks like broken up weathered basalt to me, but I'm not sure.
