Project 365, Day 62; Windmill Ridge Winery

It was a perfect afternoon. Sunny, 65 degrees, and blue sky that went on forever. A great afternoon to pay a visit to one of the local wineries that is not more than fifteen minutes from our front door. We’ve lived in this area for a couple of years, and we’ve just never gotten around to it.

The vines are looking terribly scraggly right now given that it’s supposed to be winter (though you’d never know it from our warm weather and lack of rain).

It doesn’t matter; the vines will bloom and do that wonderful thing they do every year. Fill  barrels with wonderful wine.

    That was a great little documented story about Windmill Ridge Winery. I hope you got to taste a lot of great wine – not only photographing I mean.

      Thanks Otto. I was by myself, so I bought a bottle of cabernet home. I hate to even have small tastings and then drive. Always best to go along with someone who will drive. The cabernet isn’t very full bodied, is very light, and I’m in to the more robust reds. I’ll choke it down though 🙂 It won’t go to waste.

      It is really fun. This winery is really small, so was a good start for my foray into winery photography. I’ve got some old photos from a couple of years ago that I may bring here one day. I think you are down in SoCal, and if so, have you checked out http://www.temeculawines.org ? Wow are there a lot of wineries there. Check it out.

    These were great photos. I could totally feel the place. It’s great to see things in your neighbourhood you’ve been driving past for “years”! 🙂
