Wine on Mars
Back on Earth, and here in Oregon, this grape has found a happy home.
This photo is of what I believe to be Grenache vines in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, in the Southern Rhone wine region of France.
The vine is smart. Some see barren fruitless land, the vine sees the warmth from the rocks at night after a long day in the Provencal Sun.
And so it goes here in our favored wine region. The vine has made a home here and continues to provide amazing fruit for us wine explorers to enjoy.
