Day 1 WBC13: Rio Vista Wines Reception, Seaplane Ride & Dinner at Tsillan Cellars in Lake Chelan Wine Valley

Steve and I had a great time on the pre-excursion to Lake Chelan Wine Valley, organized by the 2013 Wine Bloggers Conference. We have LOTS of photos to share. After a hot coach ride (AC was broken – enough said) from Seattle we were happy to exit the bus and taste the wines offered at […]

Amity Vineyards 2009 Pinot Blanc

Recently a co worker and fellow wino took a quick trip to Willamette Oregon which of course had to include some wine tasting. She raved about an Amity Vineyards 2009 Pinot Blac that she found there so much that she gave us a bottle to taste. I have to admit that I have heard of […]

Tablas Creek Vineyards in Paso Robles, CA

We have a love affair officially happening with Tablas Creek Vineyard in Paso Robles, CA. We recently attended the San Luis Obispo Film Festival and decided to drive up into Paso Robles for the day. You can’t be that close to Paso (it’s about 30 mins north of San Luis Obispo) and not go. Our first […]

Saarloos & Sons Wine and Cupcakes Revisited, Los Olivos, CA

On our way to the San Luis Obispo Film Festival to show one of Jane’s films recently we just had to take a break, stretch our legs and enjoy some sweets and vino. We picked up a quick lunch, then stopped at Saarloos & Sons Vinyard tasting room in Los Olivos, California. The last time […]

Day Two in Santa Ynez California Wine Country

Jane and I decided to start off our second day in Santa Ynez wine country at our favorite spot in downtown Solvang – Wandering Dog Wine Bar. We are members of their wine club so we were happy to try a few new flights of wine and sample the charcuterie plate to start off our Sunday. […]

A Day in California Wine Country: Los Olivos
