My mother is visiting for two months. So that she doesn’t have to sit around while I work all the time, I decided to take her to southern California and visit her grandson and his fiancée. And to stop off at a few wineries . . . .
Did I ever mention that I discovered my father’s grandmother’s family owned vineyards in Germany? It was in a village called Budesheim, right outside of Bingen. I explained to Mom that proves that I come from a long line of winos.
We not only checked out Chardonnays, but other wines as well.
We were picky about which wineries and even walked out of one before we bought our tickets. Calloway above was a favorite.
Mom was entranced with the snow on the mountaintops so early in the season.
I was entranced with the egrets sneaking around every vineyard.
On an unrelated note, if you’ve read Doll God and haven’t yet written a review for Amazon, I am shamelessly begging for another review to boost the book up to 30 reviews. It’s been at 29 for a loooooooong time. xo
