In addition to offering some tasty wines, nearly all of the wineries we visited offered spectacular views and settings. A few favorite photos are below. Yes, folks, it was WINDY on Monday.
After an epic downpour that morning, the sun came out at Plumpjack. So naturally I made Michael stand in among the grapes and take a photo
In addition to having a cute name, Plumpjack also featured this cute bench outside their front door. And! Can I please point out my gold flats? I am obsessed. How have I lived without them so long?
While waiting for our drunk tour guide (for real) at Beringer I did manage to take some artsy shots like this one.
After our sit-down wine tasting at Saintsbury. Such a cute place- a bit of a shabby chic winery
Side note: Am I the only person whose nose gets sunburned not in Florida, but in Northern California during what appeared to be monsoon season? What gives?
Standing on top of the hill- more like a mountain- at Artesa
And when we change direction, my hair blows into my face. I have a sinking suspicion Justin Bieber circa 2010 had a similar issue whilst performing in London
Domaine Carneros was unique in that the wine was served at tables for two, and offered cheese plates! Delicious and a fantastic way to eat lunch..... before you eat lunch.
Matanzas Creek was one of my favorite stops. First of all, it looked like a tree house. Secondly, the setting was so gorgeous I am pretty sure I would be happy living in an actual tree house on property.
If the tree house situation weren't enough, they grow lavender! Acres of it- and it smells amazing. This is a teeny tiny portion of it
It poured all day during our last traipse through wine country. No seriously. We're talking inches of rain in Sonoma. I still managed to get my J picture, though. Umbrella and all! I think I should have gotten a discount since, I, too, am a J.
