Off My Butt..Into the Vineyard…Photos to prove it.

Wark Communications keeps me on my butt and with a phone to my ear a great deal of the time. Too much really. So, when I get the chance to get out I take it. Today was one of those days. I went over to Bucklin Winery’s Old Hill Ranch to take photos of the newly prunned vineyard.

Strolling, looking for useful shots, taking in the scenery, talking with Will Bucklin…..all very inspiring.

From today’s stroll in the Old Hill Ranch Vineyard in Glen Ellen in Sonoma Valley. First planted in 1852. 14 acres "field blend". 25+ different types of varieties in the vineyard:

    Thank you, Tom, it’s nice to see some emphasis put on the vines from time to time instead of just the wines. It’s not very often that you see head pruned vines like that in California, with 25 different varieties to boot? Bravo Bucklin, for preserving such a rare thing in California.
