We ran out to the Suisun Valley last evening to capture a few images of the grapes while they were still on the vine.
These grapes were due to be picked very early this morning. I don’t need to tell you that these grapes will make some luscious red wine.
What I do need to tell you is that the Suisun Valley is an up and coming place to go taste wine. It was just written up in The North Bay Business Journal and there are some, long established, Napa wineries that are moving into this valley.
It’s not very far to go for many of us. It doesn’t have the crowds, the expensive tasting fees, or trouble with parking.
It does have friendly people, good wine, and lovely picnic areas. You’d better go try it before the word gets out. I am lucky; it’s virtually in my backyard.
In a few weeks this valley will be ablaze of yellows, reds, and oranges. The harvest is in and Autumn is here. Drink in all those colors that life has to offer.
