Wine Country

by Mollie

On Saturday, my sister Jamie and I helped our long time best friend Melanie celebrate her birthday with a wine tasting adventure to the Santa Ynez Valley.  Mel’s wonderful boyfriend Rob chartered a “party bus” to drive us and other friends to some beautiful vineyards in the Los Olivos area above Santa Barbara.  It was fun to see what our local wines are like and taste and buy some that I don’t drink often… apparently Syrah, Viognier, Grenache, and Pinot Noir are some of the most common varieties produced around here.  I learned a lot!  We had a fun day and really enjoyed making some new friends, but I couldn’t remember the last time I was that exhausted!

I’m definitely planning to take Andy up there some time this fall… big thanks to him for being cool with me leaving him with the kids for the whole day!
