Hillside Vineyards

montaluce vineyard watercolor

This is the view from the bottom of a hill at Montaluce Winery in Dahlonega. I took the opportunity of a gorgeous fall day and drove to the winery to paint the vineyard.

Georgia has a surprising number of wineries, and many in the northern part of the state.  Montaluce is a sprawling winery with a restaurant, community of homes, and a wedding venue.

I painted this first thing, then did several value studies from the top of the hill looking down into the vineyard.

Then I enjoyed lunch at their restaurant and painted a small study from the veranda.

A lovely day overall.
