Sleeping Vines – March 2010

Lately I’ve been ranting on about this, that, or the other and I thought that I would change it up a little this time and maybe start with something that involves more photos. I used to work as a portrait photographer, which actually killed my love of photography for a long time, but I’m starting to get back into it.

So if you’re curious about what wine country looks like throughout the growing season, then this might be interesting for you. We are currently in the off-season when it isn’t all lush and leafy like it is in the summer when most people visit the Okanagan. Spring is just around the corner though and we’ll get our leafy valley back. This might make an interesting photo series – a document of the whole growing season. We’ll see how that goes.

Even though there has been very little snow this year, the valley still looks wonderful even with the leafless vines and trees. Here are a couple of shots that I took while stopping in at Inniskillin Okanagan to pick up some of their tempranillo. Theirs in the 3rd version of that variety that I can find in the Okanagan after D’Angelo and Twisted Tree. I’m looking forward to trying it out soon.
