Larson Family Wine

Located in Sonoma, California, this winery is great! The people were very hospitable and their three dogs were very friendly as well. 
They gave us a tour of their winery and let us go up to their wines and even let us grab a grape!

They have some great red wines for every occasions, and they don't cost an arm and a leg. I would definitely go back again and highly recommend it to others.

If you are the type of person who would like to vacation in a place like, they have a house they rent out! you would be right in front of the winery!  


Mustache restaurant...

Saw this while while on a trip to Mexico and I just had to pull over and take a picture.

Wine tour: Napa Valley

  To kick off my summer break I went on a wine tour. Though it was a bit rainy Napa Valley was fun, however personally I like Sonoma more. I took a tour of a castle which was pretty fun and at times I fled from the group to do some individual exploring. 
The castle was very nice and was basically a huge wine cellar. Barrels and barrels is all my eye could see.

Then I saw their reserve cellar and lucky for them it was locked. It gave me a couple ideas of what I may want in my future home.

While the tour was fun, I just wanted to drink some wine, and drink some wine I did. Straight from the barrel... :) That's why the tour guide has that tube in his hand.

After about 20 wine tastings I was a bit tipsy so my sister and I sat down for a little picnic. Some sourdough bagger, spiced baked potatoes, some cheese spread, pesto pasta, and of course some more wine (and water to sober up after).  Maybe it was the alcohol but it was delicious!

This is just a snip of what I did, as I get better at blogger I will be able to post things better.

UC Berkeley Botanical Garden

Decided to pay the botanical Garden a visit to enjoy nature. The garden is gorgeous, large and has a large variety. Nice place for a mini hike and picnic. Though right next to the garden I noticed some real hiking trails that I think I will explore next time. 
Though the sights were beautiful, I was not prepared. I left wanting to explore more but he rain wouldn't allow me.


Not that anyone ever reads this, but...

Since I really don;t have a camera I use my ipod. I know,  horrible. Well I haven't uploaded any pic onto my computer and it has been a while. Well posts and pics to come!

See you soon,
