For our friend Kristin's Birthday, she wanted to go wine tasting. TL and I were all for it :) We spend a lot of time with her and her husband (TL and her husband are best friends), so it was a fun getaway for us (away from our normal restaurants and houses).
She decided on Amador County. It's only a short drive (less than a half an hour) from our house (we really should go there more often) and it was all of our first time going there!
We made it to 6 wineries and stopped in the middle for a picnic lunch and some bocci ball. The wineries are all pretty close together so it was easy to go to several. It was a really fun day!
At Young's Winery
Happy Birthday, K! (They just got married 10/10/10)
Me and my favorite guy.
K & I both have a major obsession with wiener dogs!
Best friends... and crazy.
Our delicious picnic - the winery poured us free wine!
We love them!
On our way home from tasting, we stopped at a Bistro for dinner - delicious!
If you are ever looking for a good place to taste - Amador County is awesome.
Tastings are free, the people are friendly - and it's usually great weather.
AND... thank you for all of your sweet comments on my last post regarding Andrew. Our situation with him was such a gift to us and put everything into perspective. We still haven't found him... but we've got our eye out.
