A Photo Interlude: Vines In Trentino, Alto Adige

While catching up on wine news today via Google, I stumbled on this Vice piece on how climate change is impacting the wine industry. It’s not a new story, but it’s always a good reminder at how the elixir that lubricates our meals, or our interactions with friends or becomes a healer in stressful times, is so closely connected to the earth.

But despite the getting-close-to-apocalyptic topic, there’s a stunning image half down the page. Clicking on the Flckr photo credit led me to  Mathias Liebling’s page, where I discovered another photo he posted (It’s worth clicking over to it so you can see it in its original size). 

Instantly, the vibrant rows of vines, with the lone vineyard worker, took me to a  happy place and provided a tiny reminder that there’s so many things bigger in this world than us. A rare moment of zen, if you will. Enjoy!
