Day 2 of the ♥Honeymoon re-do♥ was purely for this girl! —I was so pumped and had no idea what to expect! (hopefully some of this though ;)… )
We started out at Chateau St. Jean! It was a great way to start…. Simply beautiful… Everywhere I looked it was beautiful!
We were there early enough that we were the ONLY ones there! (snicker if you must, but I was drinking wine at 10 AM for sure!!!) The wonderful old man pouring our wine was a gem, loved him! It was nice that our first tasting was peaceful and just the two of us.
We walked around for a while and just took in our first views of WINE COUNTRY! We wrapped things up at Chateau St. Jeanand headed to Kenwood Vineyards! It was just a little ways down the road and I heard they wanted to please there and would help us each find a wine that we would love. Thought we would give it a try.
We walked in starting sipping away! I found a few too many wines that I loved ♥! …They sold me on a drink to be shipped to my house …so I could relive the joy. I’m such a sucker! –I don’t regret it! I liked Kenwood Vineyards quite a bit, the wine was interesting and they had a wide array of things!
…On to Sonoma!
We arrived in Sonoma and I loved the small town feeling I got! So pretty to have a town with this kind of backdrop! Oooo-la-la! :)
We ate a small lunch at the Sonoma Cheese Factory and I got some home-made fudge. Pretty darn tasty if you ask me! Then while walking around we found this great mureal on the side of a building. The husband offered to take a picture of me infront of it…… THEN a really nice young lady came by and offered to take a picture of the both of us! I didn’t even have to ask! –BAMMMM! Take that husband who HATES pictures ;)
We–okay, okay I– decided to do a quick tasting while in town! I enjoyed this tasting a whole lot because the woman pouring the wine was not concerned with how many drinks were in a flight but more about finding out what I liked and why I liked it!! I found it crazy that I could LOVE one chardonnay and HATE another chardonnay.
While I was tasing, the husband tried his hand at some photography. Top notch, husband. Top notch!
With some simple cropping and editing, this is a masterpiece by the husband himself! Great work! He had to do this, I was waaay too busy sipping away.
I realized I HAVE to split this into TWO posts, there was just too much goodness that I wanted to relive to put it into just one post, part II of Day 2 will be tomorrow! :)
