Sunday Snapshot - Summer at the Winery

We had a beautiful afternoon today.  The weather is finally summer (hot!) and wonderfully sunny.

The Mr and I headed up to Orfila Winery, where we are wine club members.  Our wine shipment was ready for us!

I love these afternoons.  We did a bit of wine tasting (their new sparkling wine was finally available and we tried some - delicious!) and then walked around the grounds for a while.




Peaceful here.




Looks like the grapes are ready to be picked!

Walking in the vineyard.



And this is a pic of The Mr taking a pic. Circular photography. ;-)


We had a great afternoon.  I look forward to going back again in the fall!

  1. Such beautiful pictures, I'm sure you enjoyed your day and the wine of course! My grandfather had a vineyard in Greece and I remember him making homemade wine, he would put rubber boots on the grandkids and let us step on the grapes, it was the best time!~
