Happy Monday! Yes, I’m finally doing a Monday post.
As if last weekend’s activities weren’t enough, this weekend we decided to leave the city and went to wine country.
My friend Christin treated us to an awesome tour of four wineries in Sonoma.
We crossed over the Golden Gate Bridge, but it was too foggy to see in the morning hours, so just imagine it’s majestic beauty.
With that imagery in mind, I’ll take you on a photo journey of our tour. Get ready for a lot of pictures.
First stop-Nicholson Ranch! Pepper is the resident dog you see in the photo.
Then we visited Homewood, which was a small winery with beautiful views and a laid back atmosphere.
which housed the restaurant where we ate, El Dorado Kitchen. I’ll have to come back and stay in the hotel because it fits the quaint, yet trendy Sonoma hotel image I had in my mind. And of course there’s pictures of the food. I can’t forget the food-
and the largest plate of truffle fries that the four of us were afraid we wouldn’t be able to finish.
Next, we went to Kaz, where we got to taste wines (duh), crush some grapes
and drink grape juice straight from the fermentation bins (it’s delicious and tastes somewhat like a bubbly smoothie).
We even bottled and corked our own wines!
Our final stop of the day was VJB Cellars.
We finished off the day with a ferry cruise back to San Francisco that was complete with scenic views of San Francisco-
All in all, I’d call it a pretty perfect day.
If y’all are ever in my neck of the woods, let me know and we can go to Sonoma together! 😉
