April Fools’ Day Wine Country Excursion

2 04 2011

Spent the afternoon with friends doing one of our favorite activities: wine tasting! The winery du jour was Cambria Winery & Vineyards in the Santa Maria valley. We had all been Tweeting the winery for weeks beforehand, so they knew we were coming, and they gave us V.I.P. treatment! We received the most courteous and helpful service in the tasting room from Bill and Patti; they helped guide us in choosing which ones to taste from their extensive selection. I think we all were impressed with the line up of wines which were carefully crafted in small batches. Cambria is definitely a favorite Central Coast winery of mine after this experience!

After wine tasting we wandered out into the vineyard to take photos and enjoy the fresh air and the glow of the late afternoon light. Then we continued with a drive through the countryside on idyllic Foxen Canyon Road……. We finished up our excursion at one of our very favorite Central Coast restaurants, Full of Life Flatbread in Los Alamos, where the cooking is centered around a huge hearth, and the emphasis is on the freshest local organic ingredients prepared in highly creative ways. From start to finish, their menu is consistently extraordinarily delicious!
