10+ Awe-Inspiring Photos Of Vineyards In the Winter

It’s hard to take a bad picture of a vineyard. There’s something about the rolling hills and geometry of endless rows of vines that just looks so elegant. Of course we love seeing lush vines weighed down with ripe fruit, but during the winter a vineyard takes a different appearance altogether. The vines remain dormant, without any foliage or hanging grapes, resting until the next vintage.

While most vineyards remain safely tucked away on valley floors, where there’s little chance of snow, some are located at higher elevation, on steep hillsides and in rugged terrain. Here in the Okanagan valley for example we occasionally see snow accumulating on the vines. Vineyards take on a certain magical appearance when blanketed with a layer of white snow, and today we gathered some of our favorite shots from around the world to share with you.
