On Thursday we got together with
our good friends, Connie & Greg,
and showed them the River Road wine trail.
There are 8 wineries on River Road and surrounding roads.
The road stretches from highway 68 south to Soledad.
Lucky for all of us, the RV resort has free wine tasting passes :-)
We started out at Scheid Vineyards, which is just south of us here.
George and I had never been to that winery,
and this is Connie & Greg's first time to this wine area.
We picked up some crackers, cheese, sausage, and munchies,
and headed on to Hahn Winery.
They have a couple 'house' cats,
Chardonnay and Cabarnet :-)
George's favorite winery :-)
We picked Hahn to have our little picnic,
due to the fact that the views from their deck are spectacular!
We had our munchies and a bottle of wine,
it was so nice out!
Even the Jays were happy..
We did go to a third winery, Pessagno,
but by then we were 'wined' out :-)
The four of us ended the afternoon with a nice
dinner at Luigi's in Gonzales.
It was delicious!
we picked up my Mom
and drove down to Bakersfield.
My Aunt and Uncle were having a huge garage sale,
and we thought we'd help out
and get a visit in at the same time.
It was a quick trip, but fun to help out.
George was careful not to take home anything :-)
