I first visited this garden several years ago when it was the property of Belvedere Vineyards. Belvedere alas is no more, but thank goodness, the gardens still live on under the proprietorship of the Donatiello family. My previous visit was a tour escorted by Gary Ratway , who designed the gardens , and whose signature can be seen still . I think Garys gardens look particularly fine in fall, and this garden though quite geometric, still somehow fulfills my desire for horticultural untidiness.
