On one of our many “wine weekend get-a ways”, Jenny and I visited Delfosse Vineyards in the Hickory Creek Valley on the Monticello Wine Trail. One of the more interesting photos made on that trip was this one that Jenny took with my Canon PowerShot point-and-shoot. She saw a case of empty, dusty wine bottles sitting in the tasting room and snapped this shot. Faber, Virginia. October 30, 2011.

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Hickory Creek Valley south of Charlottesville, Virginia, Delfosse Winery seems like an Italian villa winery with its terraced vineyards and serene lake setting. Their premium wines are as spectacular as their mountain views. I took this shot last autumn from the porch of their hilltop cabin, which is available for weekend getaways.
