|The wine selection from this past weekend. I told y'all Mom spoils me when she visits.|
I've decided on the vineyards I want to go to, so why not do some taste testing with some of the wines. OK, some are out of my price range, so I'll wait till the vineyard visit. But I've seen some wines at Total Wine that I know I can splurge on, like from Chateau Montelena. Yes, we are going to the Chateau that shocked everyone in the Judgement of Paris. It's wine history, and I need to go. The other places I've picked are Schramsberg, Rombauer and Baldacci. Schramsberg was a must, it is sparkling wine. Happy birthday to me :-)
This trip has been such a good diversion when I needed to step away from the stress of work and look over my list to whittle down. What am I going to divert myself with after the trip? I've watched the 3 wine movies I know of, Hollywood needs to make more. They are A Good Year, Sideways and Bottle Shock. Pour a glass and watch those movies.
