Napa Valley Saturday drive...
To my surprise, several vineyards I passed yesterday had yet to be harvested. The grapes have begun to loose their moisture and are on their way to becoming raisins. I wonder if these grapes were deemed unsuitable and left on the vine?
Or perhaps they're for a sweeter, post-frost havested blend of wine? I was tempted to sample a small handful. (Surely no one would notice this vine was a few grapes short?) But I thought, better not...
Golden rolling hills of California flank the vineyards of the Napa Valley.
