A WINE COUNTRY WEEKEND
You know that I love to get up to wine country as often as possible, especially in the foggy summer months. Well, this weekend was a bit of a change of pace because the weather in Sonoma was a bit foggy and rainy. However, it doesn't need to be beautiful outside to enjoy a nice glass of wine.
I had the opportunity to join the
's club members celebration. The beautiful winery is situated in lesser-known Kenwood which is just north of Sonoma. I prefer the more relaxed atmosphere of Sonoma over the busy, crowded Napa side.
It was my first time visiting
and the property was absolutely gorgeous. I loved trying their wines (they are known for chardonnay but the pinot was my favorite) while enjoying dramatic views of the fog-covered mountains. We even got to go on a short carriage ride around the property to find out more about the history and the varietals of grapes they grow.
After enjoying our time at the winery, we stopped at
for what I guess you could call "linner" at 4pm. We tried their jicama shrimp tacos, truffle fries, mussels and of course, finished off with a cheese plate. Because what would Somoma be without wine and cheese?
