I always say
All work and no play is just

So me and the mister and the baby sister and our new son in love
took a few days out of our very busy work lives to
taste the vine

We all left very busy professional lives
(except me...mine's not so busy)
and headed west to wine country

Scribe is where we met up with our old friend and his new girl
and sat out in the warm California sun 
and tasted

My gosh that state is gorgeous and we just love the laid back vibe
there were so many fun moments (and vineyards!)
my favorite being the evening we sat out on the porch of our "home", having a glass of wine before dinner in Healdsburg

 being tested on the 
Periodic Table of Elements
by our very own in house chemist Coach Been

yes...it does

Sounds like fun family times, and with wine even better.

I remember our trip to Northern California to the Korbel CHAMPAGNE vineyards. WOO HOO! I am not a drinker, but I do like a flute of champagne once in a while and they had a tasting party. I was waiting however, for the PINK STUFF that didn't come until about 10 glasses later. I was a bit dizzy! But it went down good....

Gina dear, so glad you had this experience! And thank you so much for visiting and leaving a comment. LIFE IS BUSY, but good! Anita

Que legal. Meu marido ama vinho, ele ia adorar conhecer o pais do vinho.
Tenha um ótimo dia.

Gina, you are talking my language, and moving to southern Calif has me longing for my home in Northern Calif, where visiting the vineyards was a beautiful day visit with friends and myself. Love your beautiful photo, and you have me longing for a family visit to Napa!

Beautiful post.
