How fortunate to grow up in Northern California. The beauty is as endless as the rolling hills. The golden, orange afternoon sun casts the most beautiful lighting on everything that surrounds me. Sonoma, endless wineries and beautiful weather! As we started out at our first winery and begun "wine hoping", the sun peaked out of the clouds and by the end of the day it was nothing but clear blue skies. Tasty wine and great company made the weekend very memorable as the warm November sun lit up the colorful orange, yellow and red leaves beautifully as they slowly fell off the trees. From the bubbly of the Korbel winery to ''Dia de los Muertos'' celebrations and candle it caves of Bella Winery, the weekend was filled with laughter, great food, and delicious wine as we drove along the colorful grape lined hills of the Sonoma Valley.
