Chardonnay Grapes

I had my first opportunity to take pictures of a vineyard yesterday. Smith Vineyard, a local, organic vineyard, had me out to take pictures of their grapes going through veraison. It was quite an education to learn about growing delicious wine the organic way. Enjoy the pictures, it certainly made me look forward to the 2011 vintages from Smith Vineyard.

Primativo in color. The variation in berry size was due to a heavy rain during bud break.
