Shadow Shot Sunday ~ Blue Wine Bottles

I saw these beautiful blue wine bottles while visiting my daughter, Erin. Only one was opened and I asked her if she would save the empty bottle for me. It was a blueberry wine and she gave me some to try. As I love blueberries, I loved this wine too!
She sent me home with both bottles!



The beautiful blue bottles with long, narrow necks produce a lovely shadow.
Erin bought the wine from Tomasello Winery located very close to her home.

From the Tomasello Winery Website:
Tomasello Winery's vineyards are located in the Atlantic and Camden counties of New Jersey. The vines grow in a sandy loam soil with a clay bottom. The soil is somewhat acidic (have you ever tasted the famous Jersey Tomato?) which benefits the acidity of the wine. Climate is Region 3 on the Davis scale.Harvest generally commences during the last week of August through the first week of October. During dry seasons, the harvest parameters are typically high sugar with a strong underlying acidity.


This winery is located in a town called Hammonton which is known as the
"Blueberry Capital of the World".
So it is not surprising they would produce a wine such as this.

Tomasello Blueberry Wine

For over a decade Tomasello Winery has been producing 100% pure blueberry wine from cultivated high bush blueberries grown on the Atlantic Blueberry Company farms. The wine is semi-dry with soft and perfumed hints of blueberry. Recent studies prove Blueberry wine to be very high in antioxidants.



Abbey was holding a piece of fabric as a backdrop while I photographed these bottles. She told me to come and look at the back of the fabric to see how pretty the bottles looked shining through!


Shadow Shot Sunday is so much fun! Visit Hey Harriet to see the great shadows of other bloggers.

Very lovely shots, LDH. I especially loved the one of the bottles through the cloth! I just put up cobalt blue bottles with daffodils (silk) on my kitchen windowsills. Take care and have a super Saturday! Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

The blue bottles leave elegant blue shadows. The perspectives are stunning, the long necks give each bottle a proud looking tall stature. The wine sounds intriguing, especially on a warm day in the shade. NJ is called the 'Garden State', and it sounds like it is fore good reason!

The blue bottles cast such pretty shadows here. I like the angle that you used for the first photo.

I love blueberries, but I've never had blueberry wine.

Such a beauty! That's what am waiting for.

For as long as I can remember I've had a love affair with cobalt blue glass. I suspect it comes from my grandmother's Evening in Paris perfume, she owned one bottle for most of my childhood. It was only used for special occasions. Anyway these are gorgeous pictures of one of my favorite things.

Those blue bottles surely have a long way to go. Besides serving its primary purpose as a wine container, it can be used in many other ways such as for decoration. Finding ways to reuse or recycle bottles is a big step towards lessening waste production.
