Vineyard Harvest 2012

Posted in Nature, Photography by leahyetter on September 3, 2012

I was so excited to be invited back to the Sybille Canyon Vineyard for the 2012 harvest. Because we’ve been in such a drought and have experienced heavy heat this summer, the grapes were ready a month earlier than last year.

It was overcast when I arrived which was a great relief to the harvesters.

Even though it’s been a tough summer to get anything to grow, the buckets of grapes kept filling up, one after the other. We are thankful for the full vines!

The clouds moved out just as the sun was setting and lit the vineyard with a gorgeous orange and pink glow.

Everyone worked until the sun went down. Then we sat together and enjoyed delicious homemade lasagna  as we celebrated Sally’s (the vineyard owner) birthday. Once again it was a beautiful evening with good friends, great food, and tasty wine.

    That has truly got to be one of life’s great must experiences, one of the world’s most iconic harvests, a day in a sun soaked vineyard with friends and good food to share. What an amazing opportunity. 🙂
