So while on Spring Break, I once again got together with the godmothers from Sacramento, Claudia and Audra to do the winery thing! We went back to our favorite winery-Mount Vernon and found the owner behind the bar this time. I handed him my phone, pointing out my blog, which of course has the winery in it. He read through my last entry and noted that we would be tasting 19 wines this time-YES-that was 19! Since I was technically the DD, I bowed out on the drier wines and waited for the girls to catch up on the sweet ones. I was delighted to catch up on my wine club orders, as they still had the special on the port-BOGO for a penny. While talking with the owner, we heard about some of the new plans for the property. Have I mentioned that they have a picnic area and do special dinners for the wine club members?
I haven’t been able to take part in these, as I live too far away and haven’t timed my trip just right to make it. Next of course, we had to check out another new winery, so we ended up at Wise Villa. This is a slightly more upscale winery with a dining room and a view over the surrounding hills to die for. Looking out the front while we were there, was the most beautiful view of the vineyard. You can see it behind us in the picture.
Of course, after all of that wine tasting, we had to go for a bite at Awful Annie’s again.
