Old Sonoma Vines

Old Sonoma Vines
Oil on Wood
Available from Serena and
 Ridge Vineyard's 115 year old vines at Lytton Springs, Dry Creek are just now budding out again. They've seen drought before and have weathered many a storm. Age can be a good thing. The vines are fruitful,  beautiful, strong and gnarly. And they have proven themselves over the years.
Today I listened to author, Penelope Lively talk about  her memoir, "Dancing Fish and Ammonites,"  in which she shares "the view from old age." Turns out the view is not bad. Fruitful, strong, gnarly, and beautiful in its way.
