Overflowing with (symbolic) wine, represents of what today is called
(this very Sunday) the feast of Pentecost. People were so overwhelmed with the joy of God’s presence, that onlookers
thought,”they had a little too much wine!” Since where I
live has many vineyards, I thought this would be fitting.

Your posts were so beautiful, cheerful, and fun to read
and look at your photos
– it was really a treat. Many many thanks to my blog friends!


This week the link is open from Sunday May 31 – Wednesday June 3. midnight, California time.

Vineyards are on hills, at least here.
In a 1 1/2 hrs. drive I counted at least 10 vineyards.
They are not all large.



This may be the biggest one on our way to Sacramento.



On this hilly road are at least 4 vineyards and a couple of orchards



In the Santa Barbara area


Most vineyards around here try to have the wine tasting
on the property of the vineyard itself. This is an exception,
having their tasting room in Sutter Creek .



This was a big building, country art-sy decorated.


The delicious end result


Do you have a favorite wine? Mine is at the moment Menage a Trois, a red California wine based on varieties – Zinfandel, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Can’t believe the affordable prices on this side of the pond for wine.

  1. Beautiful view of the vineyard in Santa Barbara …, hopefully I can fly away from my country to this beautiful location.
    Greetings from Indonesia.


  2. Zinfandel is favorite, and I am a cheap wine drinker because of budget, but really have only few glasses a year. When my son and DIL lived out in California, they brought me back two bottles from her boss that had a vineyard. That was several years ago, and one is still not opened. Guess I’m letting it age more. lol Great photo journey with your photos. Thanks. Have a blessed week.
