Vineyards

I know I'm stretching this a bit, Theresa....but due vineyards qualify as fences, since they are planted in rows upon rows? There really is a little bit of a fence at the base of the first picture and in the town if you look closely. Note that in the town, even the backyards are planted with vines. A glass of wonderful, chilled Reisling, anyone? This picture was taken from the Viking river boat on the Main River in Germany. Can you imagine working in these vineyards? We were fascinated.



Linking with Good Fences today. Thanks for hosting this blog hop!

The Riesling wine is very famous and is very tasty to drink with the bubbles in it.

It looks familiar for me (when you travel again to Germany, please make a stop in the Harz-mountains, there I'm living - it's a nice area - )

I sure would mind having to work there, but I do love that wine ;)
And I found some fence in the bottom of the first picture, so everything is OK :))
Have a beautiful day

Neat- I'm not sure I would want to be hanging on the side of that hill picking the grapes! Great captures!

Oh my, how beautiful! Yes, this is the way vineyards look like in Germany, to catch as much sun as possible. It is actually very hard work, and no wonder that after the harvest all these wonderful wine festivals pop up in even the smallest wine village. There is reason to celebrate.

I love the German Rieslings - they are dry and fresh and have more acidity than the rieslings that are usually available here. I found that rieslings from Washington and a few from Oregon are quite good, and the rieslings from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia are delicious!!!

Thank you for the lovely journey down memory lane!

We have a relative per-say in St. Catharins, ont who has the vine yards close to the home. You can hear the noise allot. I think they have some kind of noise attached to the vines to keep the birds from eating the berries. So it is pretty loud.

Allot of the professional cake makers go up the road to the wine factory and buy the wine to make icing for cakes in baking professionally in stores.

So your pictures are prove as

they are needed for business's.

I think vineyards would qualify more as WWI battlefields rather than fences.

I love a good stretch and wine!

What a beautiful sight....The vines actually are on fences, it's just that the wire is covered with the vines. This is sooo neat and makes for a gorgeous scene.

I like your wine country fencing. Being that I now live in "Wine Country" myself I understand the view of that type of fencing. - Really loving that last picture of the town and house with the vineyards.

Linda said...

Beautiful and fascinating.

Gosia k said...

The landscape is the same as in y place

Marie said...

The vines have to grow on a framework...which is a kind of fence!

Pat said...

What beautiful countryside seen on your boat tour!

I never thought of the rows of vines as being like fences, but when you think of it they certainly give that appearance don't they! A great take on the theme! xx

Vineyards tend make very picturesque settings.
