Red Soles Winery at Dusk

I like to walk in the late afternoon and early evening, just before it gets dark. On one such walk I decided to explore some new wineries I'd noticed on Oakdale Road off Highway 46 West. I discovered Red Soles Winery at dusk and decided to walk up from the road for a closer look. The tasting room had already closed.

I was actually greeted by a friendly dog, but I couldn't get it to stay still long enough for a good photo. I couldn't even get a good video because I couldn't   move the camera fast enough to keep up with the dog. Maybe next time I'll get a better photo. The only one that came out well was the one I took of the dog doing its business, and I didn't think it polite to publish it.

I wondered how Red Soles got its name, and found the answer on their web site, linked to above. Owners Randy and Cheryl made their first barrel of wine the old fashioned way -- by crushing it with their feet. Afterwards, they noticed they had red soles.

Since it was already late when I'd arrived, it started to get dark and I  thought I'd best go home. Before I left,  I got this shot of the moon over the vineyard.
