it may be that it’s the anticipation of some newly-discovered wine tastes…that’s certainly so when in Northern California. We can see this vineyard from our balcony at the Meritage Resort and Spa.
We wouldn’t ordinarily choose to come to a place like this (more of a convention hotel than a romantic getaway like the Inn Above Tide in Sausalito or the Tickle Pink Motor Lodge in the Big Sur, where we are headed on Saturday) but we bid on a “package tour” at a benefit dinner for FISH of Sanibel last spring. Our friends, the O’Neills and the Mondelli’s were at our table and we all became enthralled with the prospect of doing some travel together and learning to enjoy our wines. Good choice. So far, we have all behaved ourselves.
Today is our Beau Wine Touring day. Meeting Jill and Mike Silvas at their friend’s winery – Robinson Family Vineyards.
