As I have explained with my first Buddha picture, the Buddha Eden Garden is situated in 35 ha of the Quinta dos Loridos (Winery of Loridos). This is one of the wineries under the Bacalhôa brand. The visit to the park full of Buddha's start and end in the wine tasting and selling rooms of the Quinta dos Loridos. This is a wall in the rooms.

There is an old song that goes "99 bottles of beer on the wall..." This may be the equivalent...
Louis: And one may fall ... I think I have heard it.

Looks like stocks of Christmas Cheer are adequate.
Louis: I don't think they want us to wait for Christmas, Ray.
That makes for a really beautiful composition! I love the blue and gold!
Louis: Thank you Elizabeth - I thought of it as beautiful, too.

Okay, Louis, get out the corkscrew and make ourselves a party here smile.
What a great way of showing the collection. I hope you did not leave before a proper tasting?
Louis: It would break my heart to leave without tasting, Astrid.
99 bottles of wine on the wall, 99 bottles of wine, and if one of these bottles should happen to fall....oops! smile
Louis: You counted them? Very industrious of you, Ginnie.

Makes for a most striking picture, Louis
Louis: All that wine can make one loose concentration, but I focussed.

Great art Louis - cheers!

Is this a Christmas gift pack Louis?
Louis: Yes, but unfortunately, I have lost your address, Bill.

That looks delicious Louis.
Louis: A good description for the ones I have tasted, gutteridge.
I think this is another vineyard owned by the same guy whose place I showed last year.
Louis: If you are referring to this guy http://tomwilson.shutterchance.com/image/2016/11/18/wine-lovers-delight/ then yes, that is the man. Bacalhôa is a huge wine company. I have also visited Aliança Underground Museum where wine and art are simultaneously presented in underground caves. In one of the caves there were 70,000 bottles of spumante (champagne) that caught air and is useless as wine. I said to my guide that it must have been an enormous loss. He said no, he doesn't think so, as their production is just over a million bottles of that product per year.
It looks really good, I wonder how long some of those bottles have been there.
Louis: Could be long. The production of wine by Bacalhôa is enormous and they won't miss a few.
Cobalt blue and gold look wonderful together. Very nice effect with the display lighting.
Louis: Thank you Mary.
all set for the coming weekend then, Louis? grin are there two empty cavities?
