I crossed off the San Francisco bridge in February and did not think I would be able to cross off much more anytime soon. One of the few perks of my job is the time off and Theo agreed to take some time off as well. During our time together we stopped at a local winery spontaneously (which he is not a fan of but he obliged) to see what the hype was about.
It is not a huge winery but they host tours and tastings every day which last a little less than 2 hours. They are very reasonably priced tours and I am glad I did not go with the group in San Fran when they spent almost $200 on their tour. Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley are still on my bucket list but $200 for a half day tour is a bit ridiculous in my opinion. But I digress back to the here and now...
We were not sure what to expect but it was a nice outing. The grounds were beautiful and I understand why they host nine weddings a weekend during peek season. It is just far away from the city to give you a vacation feel but close enough to not feel the dread of a car trip. I was very happy when I saw this view and remembered the photo I added to my vision board.
We learned a lot about wine and the wine making process during the tour but of course everyone wanted to get to the 'tasting' part which really made me understand why I like certain wines. The wine starting to flow and so did the conversation between the small groups of people who attended, LOL!
Theo is not a wine guy but we did agree on one that we both liked and will add to the regular spirits list. I so enjoyed our time there and they offer custom wine labels.
The rest of my week was good as well. Theo visited family while I did the annual Easter dinner with the cousins. I am convinced my cousin was trying to feed the entire neighborhood as there was enough food for them on her table! It had been a while since I enjoyed a Sunday dinner with them and not much has changed at all. The only sign of time passing is the age of the little ones, or maybe I should say not so little ones. We need new babies in this family before the annual Easter egg hunt becomes an adult event.
The week was not all warm fuzzies and kisses but it was much needed. More memories and more good times. Just what I needed when I needed it.
Until Next Time,
