It’s Pizza Friday with a pinot noir by @kjwine from the Outland Ridge in Anderson Valley. Kendall Jackson has a beautiful estate in Fulton which is just north of Santa Rosa in Sonoma County. Stumbled across this in my travels at @btlbarn in Santa Rosa. There is a nose of wild blueberry, cranberry sauce and violets with flavors of clove, black cherry and roasted rosemary. Excellent painting with this meat lovers pizza. Enjoy your Easter weekend everyone. • #pizzafriday #easterweekend #2016 #kendalljackson #jacksonestate #pinotnoir #outlandridge #andersonvalley #mendocinocounty #thewineroad #sonomacounty #redwine #winepics #winelover #wineporn #wineoftheday #winesofinstagram #wine #wineenthusiast #wineadvocate #travel #winetalk #winetasting #winetime #gabrielglas #cork #pizzaporn #pizzapics #meatlovers #pinksociety

Thirsty Thursday shenanigans with this 2016 @ballettovineyards pinot noir from the BCD Vineyard in Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. John Balletto is the founder with a winemaking team of Anthony Beckman and Ian Bearup. There are aromas of black cherry, mocha and fresh cut rose with flavors of Santa Rosa plum, mushroom and blood orange. The Balletto tasting room is on Occidental Road in Santa Rosa, which I plan to visit soon. • #thirstythursday #2016 #ballettovineyards #pinotnoir #bcdvineyard #russianrivervalley #sonomacounty #santarosa #anthonybeckman #thewineroad #wine #vino #winetasting #wines #travel #winelover #wineoftheday #vineyard #wineoclock #wineporn #winenot #ワイン #riedelusa #cork #artichokes #flowerporn #flowerpics #pinksociety

Starting off this week with this 2016 @bowmancellars pinot noir from the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. Alex and Katie Bowman are the people behind this winery with a brand new tasting room in Graton. There is a nose of raspberry, potpourri and dirty mushroom with flavors of red plum, thyme and bright cherry. Get to Graton and visit this fun and happening new producer. Have a great week everyone. • #mondaymotivation #thewineroad #2016 #bowmancellars #pinotnoir #russianrivervalley #sonomacounty #graton #alexbowman #redwine #winepics #winelover #wineporn #wineoftheday #winesofinstagram #wine #wineenthusiast #wineadvocate #influencer #winetalk #winetasting #jebdunnuck #gumby #fruitbars #icecream #gabrielglas #cork #pinksociety

Sunday forecast: Sunny ☀️ with a 100% chance of rosé 🌸 . I’m really enjoying this beautiful weather, and I’m thinking it’s time to open this beautiful bottle of @koblerestate rosé I picked up during @thewineroad barrel tasting 💕 . What are you sipping on? 🥂

Surfing and #syrah are the dual passions of #longboardvineyards’ founder and winemaker Oded Shakked. He makes several #syrahs, including these three. We liked all of them (especially the 2015 Rodgers Creek), and immediately developed a soft spot for the 2016 Mystos #russianrivervalley Malbec. . . . We visited @longbaordwine during #thewineroad #barreltasting2019. The #winery and #tastingroom are in #healdsburgca about a half mile from #healdsburg Plaza. || #wineroadlife #winetasting #sonomacounty #barrelsamples #visitsonomacounty #barreltasting #sonomacountyvintners #sonomacountywine #wineroad #bottleshot #bottleshots #longboardwines

For years I’ve pranked William by shooting pics of him with poles, flowers, trees, and whatnot sticking out of the top of his head. During a pause in the #drycreekvalley rain at last weekend’s #thewineroad #barreltasting2019, I couldn’t resist capturing a wisp of fog rising from his pate. William is standing in front of #headtrained #zinfandel vines at #mountsfamilywinery whose grapes went into the 2016 Old Vine Estate Zinfandel, one of several wines we enjoyed in the open-air tasting space here. . . . We also liked the 2016 Verah blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Counoise, and Syrah and the 2016 Petasera, (100% Petite Sirah and our favorite of the day for its rich taste and smooth tannins). Must come back here soon to find out more about this #familyownedwinery and see what the #drycreekvalleyava view in pic 2 looks like on a sunny day. || #winetasting #sonomacounty #sonomacountywine #barrelsamples #visitsonomacounty #visitcalifornia #californiawine #wineroad #drycreekvalleywines #oldvines #oldvinezinfandel #mountswinery #vineyardsofinstagram #vineyardphotography #dannymangin

Latergram from this past weekend’s @thewineroad Barrell Tasting event up in North Sonoma County. Besides the fun with @premonitioncellars, I visited with @inspirationvnyds in Santa Rosa. Met and tasted with owner/winemaker Jon Phillips. Tasted through his Russian River Valley pinot noirs along with his Dry Creek Valley zinfandel, syrah and cabernet sauvignon. He even had a tasty zinfandel dry rosé that was quite nice. Moved on to Healdsburg to @davisfamilyvineyards where I met with winemaker Guy Davis. Davis Family produces some beautiful wines of which I am a huge fan of their pinot noir, sourced from the Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley. Favorite was the Campbell Ranch pinot! Get it if you can. They also produce a garlic infused olive oil that blew me away. The @thewineroad always puts on great events. • #latergram #thewineroad #barrelltasting2019 #sonomacounty #sonomacoast #russianrivervalley #santarosa #healdsburg #inspirationvineyards #davisfamilyvineyards #guydavis #pinotnoir #rosé #oliveoil #winetasting #barrelsamples #wine #winelover #winestagram #vineyard #winetravel #pinksociety

I sniff barrels. I hug barrels. I pet barrels. The word bunghole STILL makes me chuckle and turn red. I really want a patio set all made out of barrel everything. So...naturally...I frolicked around this past Sunday enjoying all the barrel action during @thewineroad ‘s Barrel Tasting extravaganza. Here’s what I know for sure after several barrel samples. We are all in for a TREAT. Rest up you delicious wine. Get all comfy in your barrel cocoon. We can’t wait for you to make your debut!!!! #winebarrelsarefuntohug #winebarrelskeepalltheliquidtreasure #winebarreltasting #winebarreltastingweekend #thewineroad #sonomacounty

Rockpile was rockin’ it in barrel and bottle @carolsheltonwines on our last #wineryvisit of #thewineroad’s #barreltasting2019. We celebrated by purchasing a mix-and-match even-numbered-years vertical of #rockpileava #cabernetsauvignon, #petitesirah, and #zinfandel. Good stuff, with robust Rockpile tannins and plenty of room to age, even the 2012 Cab. . . .

Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home. I really want to thank everyone who made this weekend awesome @thelordofwine my brother thank you for telling me about the trip and connecting us with incredible people all weekend @marianvonblanc and @jdsthatguy thank you for the transportation, the great home we stayed in, and for being totally awesome @heyjayrose thank you for introducing me to the Porron (check out her great segment on the Porron) and appreciate your parents they were so awesome for saving all of us. I know your going to be a star and I can wait to taste the wine you create @tipsroadside thank you for being incredible we had an unforgettable 1st night in Sonoma because of your team @schugwinery and @bowtiebev you guys rock!

On cloud wine from my first experience barrel tasting! 🍷 . Even though it was pouring rain, I loved walking around downtown Healdsburg and experiencing the different tasting rooms. I made sure to stop by some favorites (@portalupiwine & @koblerestate) and try some new ones (@spicyvines & Malm Cellars). It was so interesting to see the different stages of the wine! . Have you been to @thewineroad barrel tasting? 🍾

The last day of #barreltasting2019. Sunday only tickets are available at our door. Barrels, bottles and bites are ready! The sun ☀️ in shining and and we are ready for a fantastic day!

Where else can you pick up #hotheels and cool-climate Pinot Noir? @LocalsTastingRoom, of course — nobody pairs wine and accessories like @carolynannelewis. Our drag queen days behind us, we passed on the shoes, but did pick up this bottle of 2016 #parmesonwines #wildcatmountainvineyard #sonomacoast #pinotnoir. Also a 2015 A. Toraño El Payaso #russianrivervalley Syrah. . . . #localstastingroom, which is participating in #thewineroad #barreltasting2019, pours the wines of ten small-lot producers, #torañowines being the newest. Enjoyed chatting with Art Toraño and son Enzo, who were pouring for #barreltasting Weekend. . .

Back at #acornwinery to pick up Week 2 @thewineroad #barreltasting2019 wristband. Sun’s tryin’ to poke through. . . . . #acornwinery and dozens of other #wineries are participating this weekend. . . #wineroad #wineevents #wineroadlife #fodorsonthego #fodorstravel #winetasting #sonomacounty #sonomacountywine #barrelsamples #visitsonomacounty #acornwinery #russianrivervalley #russianrivervalleywinegrowers #thewineroad

We are Barrel Tasting all weekend! Come on by while you’re along @thewineroad for a taste of futures in Forestville, we can’t wait to see you :) Tickets at the door

Let’s do this #barreltasting2019! . I never know what to do when posing in front of the camera. Versus being behind it. But that’s not gonna stop me from trying....

First stop @martinelliwinery. Boutique winery producing 10,000 cases. Great family tradition from Italy dating back to the late 1800s. The Jackass Vineyard Zin was an amazing wine, very elegant for a CA Zin. But our favorites were the Martinelli Road Chardonnay and the Bella Vigna Pinot Noir. I'm glad CA is making Chardonnay now that is not the big oak bombs. Much more sophisticated. And the Sonoma Coast Pinot is what I love..earthy, elegant, Burgundian style. Thanks Sarah for being a gracious host for us and allowing us to taste off menu! #thewineroad #russianriverwine #martinelli #pinotnoir #toomuchwine #sonomacoastwines

Odie the #optimawinery #winerydog stands watch over some Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon on #barreltasting Sunday. Pleasant pooch, if not the raconteur owner-winemaker Mike Duffy (pic 2) turned out to be. It’s worth booking the reasonably priced ($30) Meet the #winemaker tasting of reserve and current releases just to hear his tales of Napa and Sonoma winemaking. @OptimaWinery is known for Cabernet Sauvignon, but Mike also makes Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Gewürztraminer, and a Rosé of Petite Sirah and Zinfandel (with a bit of Merlot and Pinot Noir). The bonus #barreltasting2019 pour was a vibrant 2006 Duffy Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon that hinted at how well the Optima wines age. . . . #thewineroad’s #barreltastings, a #sonomacountywine tradition, continue next weekend (Mar. 8-10), with dozens of #wineries to choose from.

Daffodils provided needed color yesterday at #delamontanyawinery, our second #wineroad #barreltasting2019 stop. We’d never been here before. Friendly crew, and the wines were splendid. The 1776 Zinfandel was already showing its potential after a few months in barrel, and we enjoyed, among others, the Primitivo, a 50/50 Napa Valley/Alexander Valley Cab, and the “5” Bordeaux Blend.

Dinner tonight at @eldoradosonoma and brought along this 2016 @davisfamilyvineyards pinot noir from Campbell Ranch on the Sonoma Coast. Davis Family is participating during the barrel tasting event put on by @thewineroad folks these first 2 weekends of March. Davis Family has their tasting room in Healdsburg with Guy Davis as the winemaker. This one has a nose of crushed wildflowers, blueberry and mushroom with a palette full of pomegranate, mint leaf and ripe raspberry. This is another one I highly recommend from Davis Family. Paired nicely with the seafood paella.

Advance ticket sales for @thewineroad Barrel Tasting ends tomorrow, so grab those tickets and join us for two weekend of incredible fun! Link in our bio!⁣ ⁣ Barrel Tasting is not a food pairing or themed event. It’s all about the WINE…many wineries offer “futures” on their barrel samples. This is a chance to purchase wine now, often at a discount, then come back to the winery when the wine is bottled, typically 12-18 months from now. Many wines are so limited, buying futures is your only chance to purchase them.⁣ ⁣ #barreltasting #thewineroad #russianrivervalley #sonomacountywine #wineevents #winetasting #forestville #winetravel #vineyards #gowinetasting #vino #winetourism #winetime #foodandwine #foodwinetravel #winesofinstagram #californiawine #wine #pinotnoir #winelover #winery #winemaker #winecountry #winelife #sonomacounty⁣

Tomorrow, February 23 is Open That Bottle Night. OTBN Thanks to Dorothy J. Gaiter & John Beecher, we love the idea opening a special bottle, and enjoying the memories it evokes.

“One can never have too many bubbles in one’s life”- Everyone 🍾🥂 . . . We spent a lovely few hours at @breathlesswines ‘s Healdsburg tasting room (which is made from shipping containers!) tasting their sparkling flight. The brand is started by three sisters in memory of their mother so they have really poured their love and dedication into making their sparkling wine. During our visit we also got to experience Sabrage: opening bottles using a sword. It was quiet the experience to too off the day. — For some other @thewineroad places we’ve visited, check out our website.

Big Saturday event at the homestead. Sharing wine with friends and family. This is one them, a 2013 @whiteoakwinery pinot noir from Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. White Oak has a tasting room in Alexander Valley and is participating in the @thewineroad Barrell Tasting event the first weekend of March. This has a nose of smoky dark cherry, rose petal and tomato leaf with tastes of cranberry, cinnamon and blood orange. Fun times here! • #saturday #babyshower #2013 #whiteoakwinery #pinotnoir #russianrivervalley #sonomacounty #thewineroad #barrelltasting2019 #alexandervalley #redwine #winepics #winelover #wineporn #wineoftheday #winesofinstagram #wine #wineenthusiast #wineadvocate #influencer #winetalk #winetasting #winetime #gabrielglas #cork #balloons #itsagirl #grandbaby #pinksociety

Retro Vibes at @thesandmanhotel 😎 . . . @thesandmanhotel is the perfect place for a low key place to sit back and slow down a little when visiting Santa Rosa. They have an awesome heated pool and hot tub that is open year round along with their newly renovated Pool House & Bar (seasonal hours). Enjoy new Sunday Funday food and drink specials on Sundays from 10:00am to 3:00pm. We love that they are an affordable option that still covers everything you’ll need for a great stay. — For some other @thewineroad places we’ve visited, check out our website.

Morning fog over Dry Creek Valley seen from our Cabernet vineyard above the fog. #westwines #drycreekvalley #sonomacounty #thewineroad #gowinetasting #cabernetsauvignon #healdsburg

Throwing it back to a few weekends ago when our besties came to town and we drank all the wine. @thewineroad has the best events! Cheers to the weekend. Find some friends and raise a glass!!

A team that drinks bubbly and eats cheese is a happy team!

Can you believe I had never been to Kendall-Jackson before last weekend? 🙈 I did enjoy the Cabernet I tasted last weekend, but I definitely want to go back and try more of their wines 🍷 . Also, I’ve heard they have beautiful gardens 🌹 I’m trying to discover more wineries with gardens, do you have any recommendations? 🌿 . & I FINALLY posted a photo to my feed with my new hair cut ✨ Do we like the short hair? 💇🏼‍♀️

Celebrating a couple of birthdays with some great red wine. Ordered out for some yummy Italian food and paired the with a couple of real winners. Started with the Crossfork Creek Cabernet, which was a real winner and bargain for the price coming from Yakima Valley, Washington. This wine paired very well for everyone and was lush and rich and had a wonderful finish. The Bennett Lane Maximus, from Calistoga in the Napa Valley of California, was a 2010 and is still drinking amazingly well and had a great deal of structure and also paired incredibly well with each dish. Both were perfect accompaniment to our meal and made for a very happy birthday party!!
