Winery Outbuildings and Vines

Today's Saturday Vineyard Visit brought me to the Gray Ghost Vineyards and Winery, in Amissville, Virginia. The winery is named for a famous Confederate guerrilla fighter, John Singleton Mosby, known as the "Gray Ghost" for his stealth and daring operations behind enemy lines. Gray Ghost is located in the heart of the territory where Mosby lived and fought. It's a small winery compared to some of the others I've visited, but the quality of its wines is excellent. They produce fine reds, such as a Merlot and a dry rose'. But this is not a wine blog, but an art blog, so I present a sketch done in about 15 minutes of some outbuildings on the Gray Ghost site as well as some of their vines, supported by slanted posts.

Pitt fine point pen on sketchbook page.
