Summer Wine: Another Day in Wine Country
above: Koshimi and Sheldon, relaxing in the back seat, living the life of luxury as we chauffeured them around wine country.
above: Different from Napa or Sonoma, the rolling hills up in the Anderson Valley wine region are somewhat less lush with vegetation, but this region produces some excellent Pinot Noir.
above: the vineyards at this winery had a nice outdoor sitting area under a trellis with vines as covering-the perfect respite from the hot sun.
above: I especially liked this vineyard, which had rows of beautiful rose bushes along the entire side.
above: A perfect spot to stop for a picnic and smell the fresh lavender.
above: this winery had a peaceful water fountain that set the tone before you even approached the front door.
above: later in the day, the kids were zonked out and napped in between our pit stops.
It was a perfect Summer Wine road trip. I named this post "Summer Wine" in honor of Miss Nancy Sinatra, who recorded a song back in 1967 with recently departed Lee Hazelwood. For all you youngins, don't laugh at the black and white back video. For the rest of you, I hope you enjoy this little ditty from Nancy and Lee.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Friday!
