Return to Willakenzie

In the fall of 2011, we visited the vineyards of the Willamette Valley in Oregon for a photography workshop.  The area is famous for their pinot noir wines.  We took various images of the grapes and vineyards.  

This August (2013) we returned for a brief visit.  We were able to purchase a bottle of wine from the grapes that we had photographed. 

The first set of photographs below are from October 20, 2011.  That year the grapes were late to mature.  As seen in the photos, the grapes were still on the vines.  It was great for photography, but risky for the winemakers as the approaching winter weather could ruin the grapes.

This year was quite different as on August 19th, they were already preparing to pick the grapes, a full 2 months ahead of 2011.  The second set of photos are from this year.
