Vineyards in the Oakville Appellation
Clusters with missing berries mean blossoms were knocked off during rain and hail events this spring. This doesn't affect quality however yields will be lower.

Meticulously farmed rows at Blackbird Vineyards
Wildflowers by the side of Dry Creek Road
Never get tired of looking at gorgeous bunches of grapes. Looks like it's going to be a great harvest!
Parting shot. Have great weekend
