After work today I headed to the Basignani Vineyard, in Maryland's Piedmont north of Butler on Falls Road. Jim Eichelman sent me an image he made at Boordy Vineyard a week ago which gave me the idea to head out to wine country in Maryland. The grapes are ready for harvest and the harvest begins on September 4th. Jim won first place in the Maryland Wineries Photo Contest!
This years contest in in progress now, visit http://www.marylandwine.com/mwa/contests/images/Photocontestform.pdf for contest application.
The history of Basignani is on their site and is very interesting and they sponsor community events and community harvest! I enjoyed my time their among the grapes for an hour or so. I would like to go back when I have more time and do some HDR shots of the buildings and when there is better light, but I made some shots and learned some info I didn't know before, so it was a good run!
