Like I mentioned in my previous post, Day 2 of the ♥honeymoon re-do♥ was purely for this girl! I have always wanted to go to wine country and enjoy the atmosphere! (here goes the rest of the day)
After our time in Sonoma, we headed back for Santa Rosa and to hit a couple of wineries on our way. –The views were beautiful the whole darn way!
We stopped at Deerfield Winery; a wine tasting room that was a CAVE…. the outside view was complete with barrels of wine/wine barrels! I have to say that this stop had one of the best backdrops for pictures of the valley.
This place had beautiful views… Photo opportunities right and left!
After messing around and showing the barrels some love, we headed inside to do some tasting! We walked into a loooong hallway that was a cave and it had barrels and barrels of wine! It was something from TV, very neat!
We then drank some wine here, the husband was not a fan but then again it was a whole lot of red! …dry red. He’ not a fan…. It was still great to experience tasting in a cave! He DID enjoy the coolness and the homey feeling that came along with it. I enjoyed this stop more for the experience rather than the wine itself.
On to KUNDLE
We headed to Kundle to try some of their goodness and soak up their views…. which were BEAUTIFUL by the way!!!
The day was slowly winding down and it was our last official tasting of the day. The path up to the winery and tasting area were VERY beautiful!
Here they had signs that kindly asked us to not touch the grapes. I was a good girl and just stood infront of them to take a picture.
The wine was good here but I thought they were a little more large scale than some of the others I really liked. I guess I like the smaller wineries and tastings so I can talk and get to know more about what I’m tasting. We were a little rushed as the wine day was wrapping up.
Then we went here…
Decided that we had done enough tasting for a bit and just took in the sights again before heading back to Santa Rosa. It was definitely worth stopping, just to see this place, inside and out!
Santa Rosa Farmer’s Market!
This was the highlight of the day! — SO. MUCH. FUN.
There were vendors of all sorts out and about to show all of their tallents and great things to eat and buy. Let me tell you, there were some GREAT things!!!
We started off at the Russian River Brewerly so the husband could drink a beer, I think I ended up enjoying my cider more than he liked his beer. It was packed but I enjoyed it a whole lot!
After that we headed over to the farmers market side of things, let’s just say my socks were blown off! 🙂
THEN…. I took a recommendation from girl in the pink and popped into Sweet Tooth which may be my heaven!! Fro-yo in SO many different flavors! Be still my heart!
We continued to walk around and take it all in. We stopped at one last tasting, expecting to get a splash but letmetellya, they filled my cup about 1/3 of the way and called it a taste. WOW! I could only do a couple, and they were great!!! Summing up our day is my supper and I just had to show you what my AMAZING and NUTRITIOUS supper looked like:
HOLY COW this post took forever!I need to figure out how to download pictures faster ….Now you must see why I had to break it up into two posts.
This farmers market was amazing and I am *SO* glad that we went! I got to experience a few of my favorite things in life all at once:
- spend time with the husband
- eat fruits and vegetables
- devour fro-yo
- drink wine
- try new things
