Westlake vineyard

Saturday,  11/07/09  01:30 PM

The other day I noted the owner of the Westlake Inn tore down a gas station to create a vineyard right here in Westlake Village.  So this morning I went on a ride with the Conejo Valley Cyclists' Red Riders* and we rode right by it; and there it was!

Westlake Inn Vineyard!

Still under construction, but most definitely a vineyard, and most definitely much nicer looking than a gas station.  I can't wait to see it fully planted...  I guess it will be a couple of years [at least] before it begins producing wine, can't wait for that either.

* Wow, what a ride - 45 miles, up and down Decker, Mulholland, Encinal, and Rockstore - I discovered I'm not in the same shape I was six months ago...  more of this kind of riding is indicated...
