Photo: Andis Winery Umbrella
I am showing this photo although it is not of Scottsdale because I like this image. It is a scene in the vineyards of the Andis Winery in the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County, California, in the Sierra Foothills, about one hour east of Sacramento.
One benefit of living in Arizona is that we are so close to California, including the wine country. Rather than Napa or Sonoma, which we love to go to, about a year and a half ago we spent a few days in the Shenandoah Valley wine country. It is like what Napa must have been like 50 years ago. Smaller wineries where they take the time to talk to visitors. We loved the rolling hills and took some wonderful photos, of which this is an example.
Oh, I should add. The wines are excellent as well, especially the Zinfandel. The oldest vineyards in California are located here.
This week we have photos of the wildlife of Africa posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
