Another drive to my hometown area of Lower Franconia had us stop along the way. Not to smell the flowers this time, but to admire the beautiful hills, men at work, and the progress on the Weinlese (grape harvesting).
The colors around this time of year are just superb.
A very narrow tractor works its way through the rows of vines.
As we were driving around wine-making country, I’d suppose this tractor is part of the wine-making process too.
Franconia is home to the Bocksbeutel bottle.
For a place to stay overnight, visit this link on which I left a review for Barockschloss Zeilitzheim. By the way, this same castle has just added wine making to its repertoire of goods and services.
We will get to taste the first wine sometime soon (May 2013).
