Where The Vineyards Meet The Redwoods

I love the juxtaposition of the redwood and magnolia garland below my beloved painting of a grape harvest.
It illustrates the slogan of our little town up north:
"Where the vineyards meet the redwoods."

It's true.
Our community of Asti and neighboring town of Cloverdale are located at the very top of Sonoma County, in the Alexander Valley.
Another few miles north, and you're in Mendocino County with its redwoods.

Although we've never spent Christmas in Asti, where the vineyards meet the redwoods might be a nice change.  Especially since we won't all be together this year.
A wine country Christmas sounds so romantic, but I have to talk the relatives in to making the trek north.  We'll see....
Meanwhile, decking the halls as usual is about to commence!

Pin It!

that sounds great to celebrate Christmas in Italy. Your hall decoration is very classy and I like it together with the grape painting.
Wish you a wonderful time.

Delores, your mantel looks so pretty, and that is a gorgeous painting. I'd want to spend Christmas at Asti if that were my home. Hopefully you can talk the family into driving north for the holidays. ;-)

This would be my favorite place to live, where I could see the ocean and still be in Sonoma or Mendocino Counties. Your work is beautiful...just like you! Happy Holidays, dear friend...

What a lovely descriptive phrase: 'where the vineyards meet the redwoods'. Can't wait to see what you have planned for Christmas this year.
It's always lovely.
