Napa Valley Dry Stone Walls

There are some great dry stone walls in California around Napa Valley 

These particular walls are found along highway 128.

A lot of stone walls in this area border the perimeters of the vineyards. 

There is a kind of symbiotic relationship between walls and vines - stones and grapes. 

Vines actually like to grow in stony soil and grow best warmed and protected by the walls. 

At the same time, stone walls like looking their best nestled into the tidy aesthetic landscape created by rows and rows of grape vines.

The walls in Napa all seem to be saying,  "Hey, we're very much part of the whole wine experience."
