|Me and the fake lake.|
I did have a lot of fun and I'm happy I went. It's just not really what I wanted. We just got glasses of wine and didn't really do a tasting. Anyways, we started the day with lunch across the street from my aunt's winery. Well, the one she's a member of. It was a really cute little spot called Cornerstone Sonoma. It has some art shops, a sculpture walk, and 3 little winery tastings. They had a fake little lake on the property. It was so pretty. We didn't try any wine, but we stopped at the Cafe there. Which was actually a full on restaurant and really good one at that. Everyone really liked there food.
Anyways, after that we went to my Gloria Ferrar and got a couple glasses of wine. I tried the Chardonnay they had on the menu. It tasted pretty good and well like Chardonnay. I don't know if I would switch to the expensive brand, but it wasn't bad. I'll have to go try my two buck chuck to compare them. I also tried the 2010 blanc de blanc. My aunt and uncle love it, but I thought it was ok. I like my Chardonnay better, but since she like it so much. I had to try it.
We didn't bring and meats of cheese since we just had lunch, but my aunt did bake some cupcakes for my very belated birthday. They were delicious. I wish she brought more so, I could bring more to school. I only have one left. They were so good. Anyways, that was my day at attempting to wine taste.
This picture of the three of us I think my mom loves she says it looks like we're standing in front of a painting. I think I look a little funny because the sun was really bright and I'm not super thrilled with my outfit because I left my belt at school and my cardigan probably should of been black. But it's not a horrible picture. I'm also really happy I got a chance to wear a dress. I thought it would be cute to be dressed up for wine tasting and this is what I brought before I knew that wasn't gonna happen.
