Now say it with me in your best Italian accent: SAN-gee-oh-VAY-say. Ahh.. you could do better.
This past weekend I explored Napa and Sonoma for the first time with Ann, Ramon and Carl*. I had to see what all of the fuss was about, and to see how it compared to Santa Ynez. Ehhh… let’s not compare. It was amazing. Rolling hills of vineyards upon vineyards, decorated with yellow flowers blooming at the base of each vine.
Since Ann is pregnant, and had to just watch us at the wine tastings, I made up a little tasting of her own (don’t tell her they were really Juice Squeezes with my own made up labels). She did get quite a few stares though.
*Yes, friends. Carl is my boyfriend.
