Noble Ridge

We visited one of our favorite wineries in the hazy fall sun, late afternoon. There were lots of grapes, but nobody home, except for a few birds, and the fruit flies. It was fun to be all alone amongst all those grapes!
We had the whole Winery to ourselves!

Peach Bluff overlooking OK Falls can be seen from NR Winery
Nets cover the vines most liable to attack by birds.
They hang there, awaiting sugar content measurements, and soon they will be banished to the vats. Here is an article with further information about grape-picking in our region....incidentally the photo at the top right on this article seems to be taken from Noble ridge!

Did you like the wine? The vignard was certainly beautiful.

Greetings,

What a spectacular backdrop to the winery! If all of the folklore about happy plants being healthy plants is true, the wine from this vineyard must be superb! After all, what vine could fail to be happy in a location like that?
