For those of you who like to head up to Mendocino and the California Northern Coast, here’s an opportunity to check out the wineries along the way… After I bought my house – way back when – my first roomie, Susan, was a wine rep with numerous accounts up north. We and a group of friends made the trek for many years. For the long weekends we stayed as guests of the wineries in their guest houses – those were the “girls weekend out” – or rented houses on the coast, of course with ocean views, and had to have the hot tub. It was a favorite annual outing with lots of fun, best friends laughter (though there were some tears too), great food – eating out and cooking in – to accompany the wines we picked up on the drive in. Some wonderful memories… I’ll try to find some of the photos of those years gone by in the next posting of this years tasting finds…
there were also several years of fabulous nostalgia at Lindy Swing Dance camp with Frankie Mannie – (remember the scenes from “Hellapoppin”?), yes on the Mendocino coast. Dancing, swinging (dance, that is), jumping, being thrown into the air… on the beach. oh such fun memories….
Sooo, take some time, get away, GO explore the Mendocino coastal region.
It is gorgeous. Well worth the long, windy yet beautiful drive. I’ve always looked forward to stopping in at some of the local scenes along the way. There are some great the wineries, breweries and restaurants to include in your Mendocino experience. All are welcome breaks to enhance the drive. and always some nice finds and surprises!
I’m going to check out what’s new this season in wines…. see you at the Tasting?
