This month’s Pic of the Vine was captured by resident photographer Richard Duval in Walla Walla right next door to the Northstar winery.

“One of my favorite wine scenes is the presence of spring wildflowers set amidst a vineyard,” he noted. “It’s a scenario that suggests beauty now with beauty to come. That overhead cloud served as a perfect arrow from flower to vine, and I put a bit of soft-focus vignette effect to it just to underscore the dreamy nature of the scene. Like wineophiles all around Washington, I’m primed for the season!”
