Temecula Vineyards in Infrared

Ponte Vineyard

Ponte Vineyard

Mary and I spent last weekend at the Ponte Vineyard Inn in Temecula, CA.  It has a great new facility, great restaurant, and nice wine.  This was not a “photography” trip, but we did manage to get out and around the place and had some fun with our infrared cameras.  Here’s what it looked like.

Just coming out of winter, the vines were closely trimmed and they were just coming back to life with the first leaves emerging.

The weather pattern brought in hot easterly air which can lead to these nice monsoonal cirrus clouds.

The inn is only three years old and built like a California mission

There is an interesting eclectic mix of California mission, traditional farm barns, and Italian ornamentation.

You can tell these are very old vines by the thickness of their trunks and main T limbs.  They also have thick gnarled bark.

All and all a great weekend – good food, good wine, good weather.  We highly recommend the Ponte Vineyard Inn.
