My apologies for not posting for the past few days! I’ve been suffering from the Wine Flu, which is not exactly a hangover, but more like the several day fog one is left in after visiting 11 wineries (drinking at 9) in one day. Believe it or not, I actually didn’t really have a hangover – we honestly didn’t drink THAT much. Ok, we drank a lot, but I feel like saying we went to 9 wineries sounds crazier than it actually was. But between that and the motion sickness pill I took for the drive back, I’ve been in a serious daze for days. I finally feel clear-headed again (what, only 4 days later) after a great run on the treadmill last night. I definitely don’t need to drink wine, or drive on a windy road, for a really long time, but it was worth it!
We attended Hopland Passport – for $35 we had access to about 11 or 12 wineries (a few that aren’t on this map), plus tons of food, great music and a raffle. There was a great selection of tri tip, cheese, sausage, fruit, desserts, etc. Yum! Highlights included almond champagne, bbq sauce, and cute dogs in a barn! Luckily there were no drunken wine club sign-ups, though it was a close call – the one we were most interested in didn’t have one! Whew!
I have the monkey ear! Don’t you hate that?
Moose ears. Just trying to blend in! I don’t know, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
All in all a great time! Special thanks to my Mom for being the DD and a fabulous host!
