a few weekends ago, david and i took a trip to windsor with his parents for a few days. windsor is in sonoma county and next along with napa, these two counties are famous for their wines. one of the big events of our trip was to go to a winery for a tour of the vineyards and have a tasting of the wines. i'm no wine connoisseur, so from drinking no wine at all i've gone from tuscany to sonoma county faster than i can truly appreciate it all. although i generally steer clear of wine, i've realized that going to tastings really helps me enjoy the flavors and appreciate the wine i'm drinking. so far, i'm a fan of chardonnay and the occasional pinot noir.
the beautiful vineyards and sunshine weren't too bad, either.
