With the American Wine Bloggers Conference in full swing over in Portland – tweets from friends there brought to mind the excellent time spent last year in the European version. Trips out to the vineyards are my favourite part of the EWBC. This photo was taken on one such outing to the Bastianich Estate in Fruili. The lowering sun cast a lovely glow over the vines who, in turn, were just dipping into their autumnal colours.

Sunlight on Italian Vines, Bastianich Estate, Fruili, Italy – the latest in the Sunday Snapshots series of photographs with a wine related theme, whether bottles, glasses, vineyards or the back scenes of wineries.

    Beautiful photo Andrew! You can almost smell the air and feel the soft breeze.
