Local Grapes For Wine

Autumn is a grape time of year. I had the pleasure of shooting some grape vines this afternoon and got somewhat nostalgic as I began seeing curled leaves and rusty colors sneaking into the dense shades of green. This is a GREAT time to rediscover the outdoors in local Audubon and river walks.

It was sunny today, grapes were plenty and I spent the better part of an hour taking photos and eating the subjects soon after. The persistent heat has broken and Indian summer is back for the moment. I’ll take it.

You don’t have to live in California to visit a vineyard and enjoy its scenery. Looking to take a drive? Thinking about growing grapes? Here are some ideas for you.

This song came to mind in the vineyard today. French goes well with wine and nostalgia.
