Wine, Photos, Phone, Food

There's never a shortage of Wine, Photos, Phones, and Food in my life, but this week was a little different. I started the week last Sunday with 95.7 The Game's Raiders Opening Drive broadcasting live from The Meritage, then it was time for wine. I was able to explore the Crusher Wine District for the first time, visiting eight wineries (Avinodos, The Wine Foundry, Humanitas, Trinitas Cellars, J. Moss, Mi SueƱo, Crosby Roamann, Y. Rousseau) in about four hours, all within 1.5 miles of The Meritage. It was so fun to see all the wineries and taste all of their fabulous wines ... I even purchased a few bottles for all the holiday celebrations coming up soon. After a day of wine, Siena offered the perfect dinner and it was my first time to try the new Fall menu ... Fritto Misto, Brussels sprouts, halibut, and a pork chop (I shared).

It's been a fun last few weeks with lots of great food and wine. It started with a quick meal at Chevy's (nachos and fajitas were needed), followed by a great concert with Matt Redman at Bayside, then I was off to Napa a few times.

In Napa there were walks in vineyards, a dinner in the Estate Cave with family, friends, and 150 others paired with wines from Silver Oak and Twomey Cellars. A day of wine tasting at Frog's Leap, Castello di Amorosa, and Chandon. Food at Bistro Don Giovanni, Gott's Roadside, Hurley's, Blend, and Siena. Bowling and drinks at Crush, and even a few tours with photographers.

Back in Roseville it was all about cleaning the house ... organized the freezer, cleaned the oven, and had the carpets professionally cleaned by Valley Carpet Care. In celebration of clean carpets there was also homemade nachos (baked corn tortillas for the chips) and root beer floats.
