Red or White? by seeya

Currently unavailable for purchase

The grape havest is late this year—-too many cool days during the summer, so the grapes have been left on the vines longer to take advantage of the warm, wonderful Indian Summer weather. Rain was not forecast until Nov 09. Then, yesterday, oops! The weather stations predict 4 days of rain starting tomorrow! Today all the vineyards are in high gear getting the grapes off the vines. I drove through the Livermore Valley today catching all the action. Some of the vines at Cedar Mountain Winery were still laden with grapes, the workers were at the far end of the row and moving very quickly towards me. These grapes will soon be in the barrels aging and waiting for the perfect moment when they will be bottled. The Livermore Valley has over 75 growers and out of the 75 there are 42 wineries. Cedar Mountain grows Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Savignon Blanc grapes. Not sure which variety this is:)

    Wow Sandy this looks like the time of year for the grapes. Probably would be fun to visit a few wineries for a little taste :)) Great story and great capture. It is suppose to rain down this way too. Probably not till the week end here tho. It is really starting to get colder which is not my special time of the year but hey it is what it is and we will deal with it LOL Sounds like it was a good day for you. Bobbijo

  • Hi Bj, this is a really great area for wine tasting and is only about 10 miles from me. Unfortunately I can’t have any alcohol anymore due to my diabetis, so the wine tasting is out, but I can still enjoy all the vineyards and great restaurants at a number of the wineries. I use wine in cooking and had opened a really great bottle of Pinot Grigio a few months ago. It smelled so wonderful I tried a sip and……it tasted horrible! The Doc told me that the meds I am taking had probably changed my tastebuds :-(( Thanks so much Bj….you comments are so wonderful! Sandy

    They look delicious and I can picture myself beneath an arbor of them!!!!! A really terrific
    capture!!!! Bill

  • Yes! I kept trying to create an arbor in my side yard from vines of the neighbors that grew grow over the fence, and had several years of wonderful red seedless grapes. One year they decided to cut the vines down, so there went the start of the arbor and my free grapes. Oh well! Thanks so much for your great remarks, Bill! Sandy
