Part XII | San Diego | Vineyard and Winery


 Orfila Vineyard and Winery, Escondido, California

More than 40 acres of the Orfila estate are dedicated to Syrah, Sangiovese, Merlot, Montepulciano, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne grapes.

The oak barrels impart many of the subtle characteristics including color, flavor, tannin profile and texture. 

I have created an "artsy" vignette  of the photographs as a remembrance of our trip. I thought the neutral tones would look perfect over a gray sofa.  The word vignette (vignette, "little vine.") comes from the division of large vineyards into 500 square meter vineyards.
