The cold winter blues is our choice for the last Pic of the Vine of 2014. This image from resident photographer Richard Duval was captured while roaming a favorite site in the Walla Walla Valley on a ten-degree day.

“Winter in wine country offers a different and demanding view of old friends like Les Collines Vineyard,” Duval said. “Balancing snow, frost, and cold are a challenge but the results are captivating glimpses of what these vineyards do in the off-season – sleep!”
