MM 3-51 A Tuscany Countryside

One day during our 2009 trip to Italy we toured a winery in the Chianti Rufina area near Florence and enjoyed the beautiful views of the Tuscany countryside. The wine was delicious, too! This shot was taken across the road from the main tasting room of Castello del Trebbio and will be my entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge.

The Castello del Trebbio winery is located near the village of Santa Brigida about eight miles northeast of Florence. Those are olive trees in the middle ground of the photo in front of the farmhouse. The folks at Castello del Trebbio produce their own extra virgin olive oil and we tasted some of that, too.

Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by her website on Thursdays (Wednesdays in North America and Europe) to see what photographers from all over the world are doing in monochrome these days. Join the fun and read Leanne’s directions for submitting your own entry next week!

    Italian and French wine (not all of it of course), and Greek olives are three of the greatest pleasures in life. Their food is pretty good too! Mmmm 😉

  2. I’m also partial to California’s Napa Valley wines. Also, we have some nice wines from the Livermore Valley close to my home in Castro Valley. We are traveling to Spain and Portugal this year and I am looking forward to sampling some of their wines, too!

  3. BC wines have come into their own too! The monochrome is like a sketch. Beautiful!!

    I didn’t know Tuscany can be this beautiful in B&W!
