I’m still celebrating my 7 decades with still more travel to beautiful places, this time with younger daughter to wine country in Sonoma, California. It’s post grape harvest and peak color time in wine country. The wineries line Dry Creek road along the way to Lake Sonoma, so frequent stops for tasting and photos are in order. A more pleasant journey could not have been arranged than this relaxed meandering in a tranquil and scenic landscape.
And the wines were remarkable…every one we tried. It turns out that drought is hard on grape productivity but wonderful for enhancing the flavor and texture of the wine. As my daughter told me, the grapes need to be tortured to make the wine great.
