Pic of the Vine - August 2013

Wednesday, August 7, 2013

It’s a fun time of year in the vineyards. Grapes are turning color but no harvest work yet (at least not in Washington). Mostly, this is the time to watch the grapes soak up the sun while imagining the wine that is in the offing. Washington's vineyards are where you’ll find contributing photographer Richard Duval just about any day between now and crush. Among his favorite spots? Red Mountain.

 “Washington is blessed with such beautiful vineyards, and Red Mountain is one of the jewels in the crown,” he said. “Much sun, great terroir, and a beauty that grows with each season. I captured this image at Portrait Cellars, and it has quickly become one of my favorites.” Click on the picture for a larger image.
