We went to wine country last weekend for Amanda's big dirty 30 birthday. Can I just move to Sonoma like, right now?
It was so beautiful there, the people are super friendly, and the food and wine... yep. Loved it. A lot.
The eight of us (Sonomaballin' Crew 2013...classy as always) rode bikes down little dusty backroads between vineyards, drank a ton of wine (maybe a little too much wine, but who's counting), tasted all kinds of cheese, ate a ton of good food, and went a little crazy in the swimming pool at our rental house.
Highlights: riding bikes through the most beautiful country side ever, the wine and pizza at Benziger Family Winery, the scenery at Ravenswood, the artwork at Imagery, the picnic we had at Bartholomew Park Winery, the brunch at Girl and the Fig (seriously, get the fried green tomatoes, you won't regret it...and the chorizo, holy hell that chorizo...), Jim from Jacuzzi Winery (he asked if we have "YOLO" in Seattle), and the all around good timing friends I was there with. PS. A few photos here are from Dee, Evan, or Amanda, the rest are mine.
