Postcard from the Grapes

Well, this is what the vineyards will look like in a few months.  The picture below is what they looked like this past weekend.  Doesn't matter that the vines are embryonic...the view from the vineyards is always spectacular.  Wish this was a better picture...didn't have quite enough sun.  But at least it wasn't pouring rain....

We spent most of our time in tasting rooms, not out trekking around the fields.  The tasting rooms are always beautifully turned out, and usually have seating that spills out onto a patio or deck, for when the weather is fine.  The weather wasn't was kind of chilly and a little on-and-off rainy...  but we checked out the outdoor seating anyway.

Yes, it was the quintessential Oregon yuppie weekend. But we really did have fun

(Seems my stinkin' pictures STILL aren't working.  Let's see what I can do about this.)

(Okay....look at the above entry to see the pictures I'm talking about here.  And shoot me if I ever try to copy and paste pictures into a journal entry again!)


  1. Sounds like great fun--glad you had a good time.

  2. It sounds wonderful. Only your first picture came up, though. I'll have to check out the rest later.

  3. Looks like you're still having some trouble with your pictures. I'll check back later. I LOVE vineyards. They're so orderly - yet so peaceful. When I converted - I had to pick a Hebrew's Karmit...translates to Vineyard.
