Badgley Mischka Wedding shoes…Louboutin…Stuart Wietzman…Tory Burch…Vince Camutto…Salvatore Ferragamo…the list goes on…
One of us at Shadowcatcher Imagery has an obsession with wedding shoes! But, then, what photographer doesn’t want to photograph a spectacular pair of bridal shoes? From wineries in Temecula Valley to beautiful hotels and historical ballrooms in San Diego, Del Mar and La Jolla, often the shoes reflect the tone of the day! This particular spectacular pair of shoes is from the house of Badgley Mischka worn by our bride Linda at Danza del Sol Winery in Temecula Valley. The gorgeous detail of the shoes echoed the design of the engagement ring wonderfully. Lighted by the afternoon sun coming through a window, just the right amount of natural light to set off the stones in both beautifully.
Danza del Sol Winery’s story is deeply rooted in Temecula Valley’s wine history. Founded in 1978 by Dr. William Filsinger, their 40 acre vineyard property located on the De Portola Wine Trail, was originally planted with Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc vines in 1972. In 1980 Filsinger Vineyard and Winery opened for tasting.
In the Fall of 2009, after a successful career in the software business and nine years of racing rally cars, businessman Robert Olson wanted a new challenge. After visiting different California wine regions he believed Temecula Valley was the ideal place to grow and produce quality, award winning wines. In 2010 he purchased Filsinger Vineyard & Winery and immediately began to build a strong team to support his vision of producing quality wines at affordable prices.
In the first year, Danza del Sol winery produced about 3400 cases of wine. Due to the popularity and quality of the wines, friendly staff and casual tasting experience at Danza del Sol Winery, production has grown to 15,000 cases in 2015. Their hand crafted wines are sold exclusively direct to their customers – through the tasting room, the robust Wine Club and online. The vineyard is planted with the following varietals: Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Gewürztraminer, Sangiovese, Syrah, Viognier, Orange Muscat, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc.
There are two things that are immediately evident when guests arrive at the tasting room: the rustic and authentic ambiance and our friendly and knowledgeable staff. Their team prides itself on providing a first class hospitality experience for everyone who comes to see them. Wine brings people together… At Danza del Sol Winery they pride themselves in producing wines in a Mediterranean style for everyone to share with friends and family on a lazy afternoon, dinner with friends or a special occasion.
