I have wine tasted in Washington, Napa, Sonoma, Carmel/Monterey, and Temecula. The only area I have not been to is in the Santa Barbara region, which is kind of funny.
I am often asked for recommendations for where to go when tasting so I wanted to include a series here not only so I can keep track of where I have visited, but also to share with anyone who may have never been to wine country and are looking for some recommendations.
Here are some pictures from some wine tasting adventures (and yes Claire came on a couple, we called ahead and had a driver :) )
If you are looking for a wine that I just love right now that is such a great deal, check out Bogle Merlot. http://www.boglewinery.com/home.php I believe my bottle was like $10 and is a perfect every day drinking wine that tastes a lot more expensive. I will be back next week to highlight some wineries!
