A Few November Vineyard Photos

We had a nice foggy morning earlier this week, and I made it out to take some photos.  This is one of the only times of year where it's occasionally foggy here; usually the fog is kept back by the Santa Lucia Mountains.  With the grapes off the vines, there's no harm in the fog, and it was a good excuse to get on top of the vineyard and look around.  This first shot is looking north, down through a row of Vermentino:


The second shot is a good one of our newly-sprouting cover crop:


And then a few different views of vines through the fog:
