WINE TASTING

Deciding to take the trip to SF and go wine tasting was the best idea and exactly what I needed. It was so beautiful up on Sonoma, the weather was perfect, the wine was good and the company was great. I have never done a barrel tasting before. You basically visited each vineyard and have a taste straight from the barrel. It was very interesting. 

FIRST STOP: Rodney Strong Vineyards, the views alone were amazing. It reminded me a lot of Tuscany, because of the rolling hillsides. One cool thing I have never seen was the grape vines with the fruit. The plants have this spooky character to them, almost like they came out of a Tim Burton film. 

THIRD STOP: Wilson Winery, I loved their barrel room. Barrels are stacked to the ceiling great for a good photo op. They also had an amazing view.

At this point, I have lost track of how many vineyards we visited. I think this was the last stop, West Wines. They are a fairly new vineyard, with really good wines. I purchased their Cuvée that’s super yummy. Since this was the last stop we ended up having a photo shoot in their classic Ford truck. 

I cannot wait to this again next year!
