let’s just preface this by saying…”and the wine was delicious!”
we were greeted by a malti-poo. here she is, surveying her drums of elixir. annnnd….i’ve learned that in march they are having a “dog-friendly” tasting. snacks for people and dogs, including a tour. we’ll revisit this at the end of the post.
3 whites, 4 reds. my two intellegent, gentle and fun friends. a friendly, young couple from l.a. with two kittens and interesting jobs. another couple, half of which was a jerky, pompous punk ass 29 year old guy.
our hosts were engaging and benevolent, and mostly…very proud of their tasty accomplishment.
the vintner gave a little tour, explaining the horrific lifecycle of the grape: its beautiful infancy, followed by a violent separation from its stem, only to be squashed then smashed beneath a floating lid. the horror. the delicious horror.
everyone bought a bottle or two. i even got one, which we opened there and shared with all the other tasters.
so, about the dog friendly tasting. i will probably go with pickles. it’s a long drive, but we will leave early to go hiking and hopefully take some photos of the area’s raptors. can’t take cody bear: it’s too long a drive for a sweet dog with chronic motion sickness.
one last note: so glad they had crackers, as i’m sure i would have tipped over dead without the snack.
