D is for Doce Robles
Doce Robles is conveniently located just west of the 101 Freeway. It's on Twelve Oaks Drive, and it's not very far from 101. I believe it's the first street you can turn right on after you are across the South Vine intersection. It is a very easy street to miss because it's hidden between a rise on both sides. You kind of have to know it's there to see it. After you turn you go down a long drive until you see the huge oak trees on the left and that's where you turn in to park. One of the first things you see as you approach that driveway is this magnificent oak across the street at the edge of the vineyard.
Here's another sky shot that is looking down the road toward the entrance on Highway 46 West. Remember, you can click to enlarge any photo you want to see better.
Of course, the most important part of any vineyard is the vines themselves. I took this shot one year approaching harvest time.
This shot was taken either during or just after harvest. This is when the leaves are changing into their autumn clothes, transforming the vineyards into rows of flaming color extending in all directions.
It's been hard choosing what to show you from my hundreds of photos taken at Doce Robles. Here are three more I have made into a multitude of different products at Zazzle that you can customize. Any text I've added can be removed or changed to personalize. These are three of my favorite scenes. You can click through to see the scenes better. Looking is free.
