Touring Wine Country with Rachel

Last weekend, Rachel pulled me out of the fog and invited me to go on a wine tour! We hopped on a bus to Napa Valley and Sonoma County with other tourists at 8:30 in the morning for our wine tasting adventure. The tour took a total of 9 hours during which we visited three wineries, traveled through beautiful wine country, chatted with other tourists, and had lunch. Here’s a snippet of our day. 🙂

The tour was a fun way to learn about the artistry and science of wine-making. I didn’t come out an expert, but I definitely have a greater appreciation for the craft and learned how to swirl my glass and take in the aromas ahhhh~. Lastly, the warm sun felt amazing and it was a lot of fun to photograph Rachel.
