Framed - San Luis Obispo Vineyards

Mario Ruiz

Finally, the vineyards and hills were lush green and storm clouds moving nicely through the sky Wednesday night. So I drove out on Highway 227 and on Corbett Canyon Rd. to get some shots of the beautiful Central Coast vineyards. Wine here around San Luis Obispo is a serious matter, with thousands of acres dedicated to the art of wine making. The vineyards were dry as a bone until a few weeks ago. Now everything is green and gorgeous. Glad I got out.
