Clos LaChance Winery, San Martin Thursday, October 25, 2018

Clos LaChance Winery is a beautiful vineyard located in the rolling hills west of San Martin. Today we caught the winery at its best: clear skies, vines in fall color, grape harvesting, wine tasting and several terraces with glorious views. The morning started off with a soft blueish grey mist but by midmorning the mist was gone.

We are very grateful to the staff  at the Clos LaChance Winery for inviting us back, and of course, for their great hospitality. For more information on the winery please refer to the following link:
