Monterey county wines - top 10 in the world!

Coyote Valley RV Resort
Morgan Hill, CA

Yesterday was another fun-filled day.
George and I drove down and went to church with Mom & Dad.
We enjoy worshiping with them, and love the church where I
was a member from age 17 to when my kids were young.

The plan was to go wine tasting and out to lunch.
We started out at a great little place called Portobello's.

They had some terrific sandwiches and salads.

From there we went to a few of the great
Monterey county wineries.
Wine Enthusiast magazine just voted the Monterey County wines
in the top 10 places in the world.
Pretty impressive!
My Father was controller for a wine grape broker for 37 years,
so he is a great one to be with on a wine tasting adventure.
We both enjoy being with both of them while tasting,
he knows most all of the people at the tasting rooms,
and has so much knowledge of wines.

We started out at Talbott. They have excellent wines,
but very no purchases there :-)
They are the same family that make the expensive ties.

Next was Pessagno..

Their wines aren't as good as the others, but we managed to buy a couple bottles.

Our favorite winery and wine is at Hahn vineyards.
The owners are from Switzerland, and their last name is Hahn,
which means 'rooster' in German. 

Mom & Dad ran into someone they know having a good time.

The views from the outside deck are fabulous.

We only did 4 wineries,
the last being Paraiso.

The vines are getting ready to bud.

We had a terrific time..
 The best times are spent with Mom & Dad!
