This past weekend, I went wine tasting for the first time. It was so much fun! I went with Jarad, my mom, step dad, step sister and her boyfriend. Our first stop was Gloria Ferrer in Sonoma. This was by far my favorite. They were undergoing renovations, but that didn't lessen the experience at all. Our expert wine pourer was named Diego. He was awesome!!! He we was super friendly and funny. He fit right in with us. Gloria Ferrer peeps, if you're reading this, give him a pat on the back or something!
My mom and step dad are wine club members, so that made me feel important. They ordered bottles of whatever they thought we would like and they were right. Everything we tried was delish. They had olives and bread sticks out on the table. We were sitting outside on a patio of sorts. The weather was perfect. No complaints here!
Diego brought my step sister a wine filled truffle for her birthday. She loved it.
|told you she loved it!|
My mom packed a picnic for us to enjoy later in the day. I tried bacon cheddar cheese for the first time from Trader Joe's. Yum! I also tried jalapeno artichoke dip from Trader Joe's and that was awesome too!
I definitely want to go back when their renovations are finished and visit their official tasting room and take a tour!
