Menghini Winery | Julian, CA

Saturday afternoon I drove up to Julian to meet up with a few photography friends. It was my favorite kind of meetup – wine tasting at Menghini Winery and then some night photography.

We spent the afternoon at the Menghini Winery where we enjoyed some vino, dinner delivered from the Candied Apple Pastry Company and wandered the grounds with our cameras until the sun went down.

A few of my favorite things…

An old rusty bicycle by the tasting room entrance:

And the winemaker’s gorgeous old Pierce-Arrow Motor Car:

After sunset we parked ourselves in an open field and set up for a bit of astrophotography (my first attempt). But I’ll save that for another day. 🙂

If you find yourself in Julian, and you fancy a bit of wine, make sure you stop in to the Menghini Winery!
