Wine barrels

Recently we went out to the Mandola Estate Winery in Driftwood, TX - which is about 30 minutes from Austin.  It's a great place and they make great wine.  We went on the tour and luckily I had my camera handy.  You don't actually get inside their operation - this was shot through the glass but it gives a good sense of how much they are producing.  I am often surprised at the quality of Texas wines.  Though I err on the side of being a Rhone Valley guy (especially the southern Rhone), I must say I had some spectacular wine that day. This scene drew me in because of the spillage from that one barrel on the right, as though it was bursting to get out there and see the world!
