Gracious what happened to the summer months? I feel like a kid who’s summer vacation has been cut short. Fortunately, we get a late summer out here in San Francisco, but it is amazing that it is already September 1st.

Yesterday being the Sunday before an extra day off, I took the opportunity to cruise up to Dry Creek with some wineaux friends. Little did we know that Trentadue was having a 50% off sale, and my friend stocked up! Their La Storia line has always been a favorite of mine.

This being a new month, I thought I’d take the opportunity to tell you about a few evetns coming up:

Release the Spaniard Dinner -at Twisted Oak Winery
Being a recent convert to the Twisted Few wine club, I decided this would be a fine opportunity to visit the Murphy’s area to do a little wine reconnaissance. Since I haven’t been there since I was prospecting for gold in high school, I am looking forward to a grown up tour of the area.
Some other wineries in the area that we will try to taste at are:

  1. If you DO plan to visit all of those wineries before the dinner, I might recommend contacting the Murphys Cab Company 209-559-8777. Just saying. See ya!

  2. If I visited ALL of those wineries, you'd have to find a wheelbarrow ;-)Besides, my mommy taught me how to spit.See you next weekend!
