My personal summer mandate is to adventure, and also to be open to adventures in your own "backyard" when you can't go away for an extended time. I spend a great deal of time at wineries with my family, not always to drink their wares, but they boast the most stunning properties in the region that are open to the public at no charge. Perfect for a view that takes your breath away and a quiet moment to yourself.
Last weekend my mom and I stopped by Quail's Gate Winery to shoot some photos and my friend who works as a tour coordinator there had whipped up some truffle parm and garlic popcorn to sell in the shop by the bag. We took a bag (or two) to go and wandered about the grounds catching up together. I have embraced the culinary/wine culture in this region with all of me and I love learning about what we have to offer. What sights do you love close to your home? Have a wonderful weekend!
