You feel like you’ve reached a summit once you arrive at the parking lot of Palumbo Family Vineyards in Temecula, California. The view of the vineyards and Temecula Valley are spectacular. It’s quiet up here with a gentle breeze. Our first impression was a welcoming one; a large paved walkway lined with lavender, sea grass and rose bushes leads visitors to the tasting room. Housed in a converted barn with a stone façade and wide wooden double doors, the tasting room has a rustic sophistication with more of those spectacular views of the vineyard and Temecula Valley.
He sits on a bench, completely engrossed in a small piece of wood he’s carving, that he doesn’t even realize visitors have stopped and are watching. He is surrounded by his work – a variety of sculptures on different subjects in wood or bronze, all on exhibit at Celebration of Fine Art in Scottsdale, Arizona.
At first glance, his work seems a bit eclectic; but upon further inspection, the pieces all seem to have perfect balance and synergy. When he finally looks up at his visitors, one can sense a man who is completely comfortable in his environment. Clearly, this is a person who is in love with his craft.
