Eat Well (and Drink Well): Sonoma Snaps

Two weekends ago I had the pleasure of driving up to Sonoma with my husband and his parents. Although I've only ventured into wine country five or so times, I have to say that based on my experiences thus far, I find Sonoma to be a lot more enjoyable than Napa. Even though I tend to prefer the kinds of wines that are produced in Napa, the gorgeous scenery, low-keyness, and uncrowded nature of Sonoma outweighs my slight preference for Cabernet over Pinot Noir.

How awesome is this bridge?

I was pretty excited to see the Lone Star flying over California.

We visited Arista, Stonestreet, and Chalk Hill wineries while we were in Sonoma. I highly suggest them all!

I had so much fun this past weekend hanging out with my friend. Somewhat unfortunately, the weekend ended on a bit of a rushed note with my friend's flight back to New York being cancelled, her finding this out at about 1AM Sunday morning, and her then booking a new flight to New York that left at 6AM. So obviously we just stayed up until we had to go to the airport watching reruns of the original Charlie's Angels.

Here's hoping that all of you out on the East coast get to enjoy a "hurricane day" that's heavy on being snuggled up on your couch with a book in hand, and light on destructive rain and wind. Stay safe, and have a great week!
