My bff Lauren (aka L'Ron, L'ronimo, etc) celebrated her 30th birthday this year and we went to Sonoma to party it up. Lauren, her husband Zan, my husband, and Colleen and her fiance Bill all went. It was seriously a trip of a lifetime. We laughed our butts off and drank so much wine we were all hungover for a week. Here are some of my favorite pics from the trip...
Here is Lauren with her husband Zan at Benzinger Winery..
This is what happens when I ask Colleen to hold my camera while I use the restroom. Clowns.
Here they are at Unti winery...
Here is Mr. Unti himself...
This is when the wheels started to fly off the wagon...
We pre-ordered a picnic for the ride. I got the brie and prosciutto sandwich. It was crazy good. It was so good it hurt me. I cried a little.
Lauren and I... you know... just taking in the sights.
I loved it at Unti. It was like being in Tuscany. Just beautiful. THE WINE and the wine. The wine was so good.
The last winery we went to, Bella Vineyards, was frickin sweet. The winery and the tasting was underground in a cave.
As we were waiting for the gate to open, I came across the most heavenly smell...BACON. I tracked it down like the little pork hound that I am and found this lady. Prepping for a big event. It was SO DELICIOUS. Thick cut with a hint of brown sugar.
Okay, back to the trip. Here's Charlie in the entry of the cave.
...here we are inside the cave in the coolest tasting room ever. It was amazing and such a cool experience. We felt like royalty.
I absolutely can't wait to go back. Next adventure...Napa??? Stay
