Taking the "Taste" out of Wine Tasting

This past weekend Rich and I celebrated the birthday of our favorite neighbor with a little wine tasting. We rented a limo bus from Yorba Linda - barely escaping the wild fires - and made our way to Temecula.

These are the tame photos...I'll spare you the shots from inside the limo bus.


Check out that mustache! This was taken at Thornton Winery.


Stuart Cellars - taken for my father-in-law.


The whole gang!

We hit up one more winery - Wilson Creek - I think the pictures from Wilson are a little sloppier so they didn't make the blog....But I do have to tell you about their Almond Champagne. Yum! If you haven't tried it I highly recommend.

I bought a bottle to bring home and share with a certain friend who may come visit me this weekend....

This is so ironic. Our friend was JUST telling us about the Wilson Creek champagne yesterday, and I was online looking for it (I want to buy a bottle!) and here I am at your blog! Yay! :)

Oh Mary you MUST buy a bottle. I LOVE it but it's not for everyone. But definitely worth a taste.
