Our trip is winding down; soon we’re returning to the East Coast. We have to get more wine tasting in!
I never know where a tasting might lead; I could end up walking in the woods, touring a castle or riding a tram car. Ankle boots are an instant go-to. Also, my shine sweatshirt has been invaluable during this trip. It’s comfy and luxe; never frumpy. It looks great with skirts or over jeans.
When tasting – you may need reservations. Also, prepare to shell out $10-$30/per person per tasting. My brother and his wife get an industry discount; too bad fashion doesn’t work the same way. (Imagine getting a discount at Barney’s because you’re a designer somewhere else!?)
Twomey had a quaint tasting room and picturesque grounds. Beringer is one of my faves; the grounds are exactly what you expect of a winery. They also poured us two wines at once so we could compare. Sadly, I wasn’t too alert at Flora Springs. But my brother bought a few bottles – so it must have been great. It’s also located by Dean and DeLuca; after, we had easy access to meat and cheese!!
I’m not a wine buff by any means (I get most of my insight from my sister-in-law’s wine blog) but I would gladly re-vist any of the above.
One last tip!! If you are planning multiple tastings (especially with someone in the industry), be sure to spit! Don’t be a fool (like me) and sip your way to oblivion – Hehehe.
