Feels like going on a winery tour

This is my third entry for Write on Wednesday, and the theme was to go to your Facebook page or twitter and take inspiration form the first entry you come across. Here is what I came up with.

If you want to see other entries head over too


I headed down the winding road taking in the view of the rolling hills all green from the latest rain and looking fresh and smooth, the view reminds me of times gone by when I would roll down hills, just like it when I was little.

In the distance, little dapples of brown are scattered over the hills, where the trees have made there homes along the ridges of the smooth rolling hills, the sun filtered its rays through the glass in the windscreen and is warm on my face.

I can see the vines in the distance, all in formation making there way along the the side of the hill, they soak in the sunshine to help produce the little buds of juice, which I'm looking forward to sampling once they have completed their long fermenting process, where they give all they have to give.

The liquid contained in a squeaky clean glass leaves residue as you swirl it around and around, taking a sip of the lovely fragranced syrup, my taste buds start tingling with pleasure, the fluid covers the inside of my mouth and the sweet aroma fills my nostrils with the sweet fruity scent.

As I sit and enjoy this moment, I realise this is why I felt like going on a winery tour.


  1. Hmm, I'm thirsty! 5 long sentences, maybe you could put in some pauses...for effect if you were to edit it later?

  2. I remember rolling down grassy hills when I was younger, that brings back happy memories. I can feel the anticipation in this too.

  3. Lovely. Took me back to trip Hubby and I took to the Hunter Valley many years back now. X

  4. I totally want to go on a tour. Nice.

  5. I remember rolling down hills too, so much fun.

  6. Oooh, I felt I was really there! Now where's my wine? LOL

  7. I tried rolling down a small hill with my girls a couple of years ago. It was less pleasant than it was a child - took ages for my inner ear to recover :P

    Your prose undulates gently just like those lovely hills.

  8. My favorite was the bit about the wine and the little dapples of brown as your description for the trees. I agree with House of Prowse, you could shorten some of the sentences, but then again, in a 5 minute exercise you sometimes just have to let the words flow out however they come! NIce to see you back for W.o.W


  9. Very descriptive. I love the way you described drinking the wine. Just beautiful.
