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.
