Summer Wine Tasting

The Barrel Room

We didn't go wine tasting much this summer but did visit one of our favorite vineyards for dinner one evening. On the way in to the dining room we passed a number of old barrels that had been put to use as planters and I was captivated by the simple beauty of the building structure, the barrels and the view of the vineyard beyond.

That's what I'd call recycling :)
I love the colors you've used here, Barb, and the field and the hint of mountains that can be seen through the window...
Best regards,
Carolina

Thanks so much Carolina. I am loving exploring color and this one was hard to balance in terms of the warms and cools. As for the vineyards I don't seem to be getting them right yet so only allowed a peak on purpose!
