A Questionnaire and a Wine Cellar

To Stacey at : Yes, the Wordless Wednesday picture is a wine cellar at a vineyard in Montepulciano, Italy. The cellars, old barrels, wine shop and restaurant are so aged and romantic that it almost seems dream-like now in my memory. The picture below shows a garden in huge pots at the side of the winery. Just look at the rustic stone building! The atmosphere there is like being transported in time.
