WW: Famous Vineyard in the World?

WW: Famous Vineyard in the World?

More Wordless Wednesday

Was this picture taken at the world’s most expensive wine vineyard, the estate of Romanée-Conti, which blackmailer recently threatened to poison the vines. and extorted one million euros from the estate?

Or was it taken in California, the largest wine-producing area in the US?

Or was it taken in the Hunter Valley, which is just two-hours north of Sydney and seemed like the more possible location for a short weekend getaway from Singapore?

Sad to say, it was not taken at any of the vineyards in any of the above locations. I was surprised and also delighted to find this growing in Singapore. Yes, you heard me right! This is grown by Wine Culture, which is one of the premier fine and rare wines boutiques and distributors in Singapore and the region.

Of course when I saw it, I had to take a shot with my Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot camera phone. Pardon me for the low quality image. I’m sure if I have a decent digital SLR with a decent lens to go with it, I would have given you a much higher quality shot which is sharp and crisp. I am happy with this shot for the time being since we don’t get to see grapes growing in Singapore everyday.

Stalk me
Share the joy

    That’s very interesting! Thanks for your comment on my wine photo. Uva Mira is the highest wine estate in the Western Cape – the view from there is spectacular – you can also see Cape Town’s well-known Table Mountain in the distance.

      @ Avril, from what you described, I can imagine it must have a great view.

      @ Dora, I have no idea if it is juicy or not. Didn’t dare to pick one to taste. :o)

    I would’ve picked one! I don’t know… just to see. That’s a very nice photo for one taken on a phone actually. 🙂

    I didn’t catch on to what they were until i saw the word vineyard, then id dawned on me. We often see these growing wild along the river and scattered around the neighborhood, so i should have recognized it. Very cool that the people of Singapore can also enjoy growing grapes 🙂

      @ Katie, I’m not sure if it is even enough to make any wine out of it. :o)

      @ Heidi, yes, it looked good enough to eat, but I didn’t dare to pick any to try. These were probably the only grapes I could see.

      @ Vicky, never crossed my mind to pick one. Notice I left the address of the place out of the post? Just to stop anyone who may be tempted to go over there to pick one to try.

      @ Jenny, Carver, Alicia, Jo, Mizhelle, Itajeff, thank you.

      @ Pam, pardon me I did not make it clearly, this is not vineyard; just some grape plants that the shop planted to show.

      @ Faythe, camera phone still have its limitations. :o)

      @ Kristi, treat yourself to some wines. :o)

      @ Tina, yes it is. At least I get to see real grapes on the plant before they become wine.

      @ Sukhmandir, glad that you get to see them growing in the wild from where you are.

      @ Life Ramblings, a great find indeed! :o)

      @ Pamela, I’m not sure if it is yummy. I didn’t dare or rather didn’t cross my mind to pick one to try.

      @ WeeShenanigans, yes, a pleasant surprise for me to see grape growing here in Singapore where I least expected them to.

      @ Julia, pardon me the post was not cleared. Singapore does not make wine. I just happened to spot this wine shop growing some grapes.

      @ Sparkle, I had no idea too. But I reckon these are grown just for shown then to make wine.

    Hi BK .. surprising – it’s nice to see them individually attached to the vine, rather than one lump of berries – we’re so used to .. lovely picture .. I rather like the misty view – the grapes look slightly unripe with that light ‘sagey’ green look .. fun – thank you – Hilary

      @ Hilary, they sure surprised me. I think you are right, they appeared unripe to me too when I saw them. But anyway, I did not have the intention to try them. It was fun to be spotting grapes growing here in Singapore.

      @ Indrani, thank you.
