Lincourt Winery

On our trip to California a couple
of weeks ago we stopped in a winery.



This is the Beautiful Lincort Winery.



It is that time of the year when
they prune back all the grapes. Now there
just waiting for spring to get here. 




No... we didn't drink this much wine.
But we did do a tasting and it was pretty
darn yummy.  At $75 dollars a bottle it better be.



It is such a great way to spend the afternoon.
The weather was perfect, You can bring a little picnic. 
And sit back and enjoy the beautiful view.
And wine of course.



Another glass of wine and maybe I could have talked
my hubby into throwing one of these wine barrels
into the back of our truck.  Hummm.. Probably to big
to haul around in our trailer.



Here's a shot of the winery as we're driving away..
I just love the rolling hill in the background.

If you ever get to central California,
I highly recommend stopping by Solvang
and its surrounding winery's. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. 

Hugs~

This has to be my favorite post you have done so far. The best vacation we have taken was to Napa Valley and Sonoma. So many winery memories to look back on. Your images are fantastic.
