|meeting at the bridge|
Before arriving at our final destination, we stopped along the way to visit private villas that have vineyards.

Cherry trees were planted at each end of the rows of vines instead of wooden poles in order to hold the wires for the vines. While the grapes were growing, they were able to harvest the cherries. A rose bush is planted at the beginning of each row to alert the growers if there is a problem. The rose bush will show signs of distress before the vines will.
