wine country // day two, part two

After our lunch at Gott’s, we headed to Castello di Amorosa to see their beautiful vineyard and Tuscan style castle.

After, we headed to Schramberg intending to taste the champagne of the White House but it was closed for the evening. So, we drove on to the city of Castiloga. The downtown area has little shops, restaurants + wine bars. While walking along there, we stumbled upon these wish trees. Each tree had a different theme, and there were containers with tags + pens near the trunk of each tree for people to leave their wishes. We left one wish for us and one for Em.

After our stroll + a stop at Up Valley Vintners, we headed to Bouchon for a very yummy dinner.

    Your photos, of this and of your stationery, are really amazing! What kind of camera do you use? The colors and lighting are perfect!

      thanks! i actually use two different cameras – an old canon point and shoot for our stationery pictures and a canon rebel t1i for everything else. these vacation pictures were taken with a canon18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 lens while em’s portrait shots are taken with a canon 50 mm f/1.8. hope this helps + thanks for reading!
