I have long thought vineyards to be quite beautiful places. One need look no further than the rolling hills of Tuscany or the Napa Valley for reassurance that the settings for viticulture are nothing short of delightful. In the fifth year of my architecture education, my first semester studio was focused on the design of a theoretical project for a cultural center to be located at the Barboursville Vineyards, a very beautiful vineyard locatedin Virginia.
It is becoming common for couples to marry among the grapevines all over the U.S. and beyond. I have designed this "grappoli d'uva" or grape bunches invitation to compliment these stunning celebrations.
