Days Of Wine & Roses..........





The bill-board says it all
this old winery located in the eastern Suburbs
has been around for a long time
with the sort of nostalgic signage that makes you
 want to skid on the brakes and turn in.

Stonyfelds is in my memory along with many fine SA wines.
We are fortunate to have a rich history of wine making, Arn't we?

Oh, yes, you found an enticing sign for this winery. Most of us would have turned in, too, if time permitted.

The more often I stop by your blog the more excited I am getting to come to Adelaide! Your photo is beautiful, I'll pass on the wine thank you but I'll soak up every ounce of the beauty with my camera. :-) Have a wonderful day!

Yessss, I would have applied the brakes right away too! I love both of your photos, the second for the details in the old sign but the first because of the tall gum trees above. Only in Australia !
