Fall in the Wine Country...

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Oh, what a busy season it has been so far!  We spent time in Napa Valley which is a magical place to take pictures now as the vineyards are washed with glowing autumn sunlight.

The view from our room in St Helena was spectacular in the mornings.  I loved waking up in this peaceful place.

Vibrant cabernet grapes were still on the vines at Clos Pegase Winery in Calistoga and caught my eye with their stunning color.   

We also visited Castello di Amorosa in Calistoga. The castle has a expansive view of the surrounding vineyards and opulent paintings that imitate the style of medieval Italian art.  Below is a picture of the dining hall with its colorful wall paintings.

Our time in the wine country was so inspiring and such a relaxing break from routine.  Now that we are home, I am busy catching up in the garden and decorating for Thanksgiving.  I hope you are all having a beautiful and enjoyable autumn!
