“You can see Greece between those hills” – not from amongst the towering Cabernet Sauvignon vines carpeting the slopes in front of the winery you cant! This was taken at Villa Melnik Winery just a few weeks ago – Cabernet Sauvignon Grapes Ready For Harvest, although I seem to recall that our host, Nikola Zikatanov (the jovial Executive Manager) said they wouldn’t be picked for a week or two after this photo was taken. The whole landscape had been drenched in rain, a recurring theme during our long weekend, and the ground sodden so I imagine he meant after the effects of the rain had passed. Back up at the winery, we could see Greece and a row of wind turbines cresting a hill. It was sunny in Greece.
