Pinot and Me

Potted Pinot Noir and Me

I photograph my grape vines as closeups, so the leaves and clusters are clearly visible. Here I took in the entire vine, with a devilishly handsome model to provide a sense of size and proportion 🙂 The vines in my bonsai vineyard look like this except that most of them are in 5-gallon plastic buckets. I think the terracotta pot makes the Pinot Noir more photogenic.

I took the photo on August 9, 2008, and you can see the grape clusters are still green. Now on September 1, the Siegerrebe and Leon Millot are beginning to change color, but the Pinot remains stubbornly green.
