I was invited to take a drive up the coast to Los Olivos with a group of my favorite pals. Last weekend Sprint hosted a group of us Latina Bloggers from Latina Bloggers Connect to a wine and cupcakes event. We made a couple of stops along the way. First stop, Fess Parker Winery the owner played Davy Crockett. You might remember him from the Disney movies in the 60’s. My mom and Grandfather knew who he was right away. Fess Winery is located in a beautiful vineyard in northern Santa Barbara.
It’s a sprawling piece of land with breathtaking views. One of the scenes from the movie Sideways was filmed there. The wine was fantastic and got us all feeling very happy, as wine does.
Since they have picnic tables on the grounds, my friend Ericka (her blog is called Nibbles and Feasts) and I made lunch for all our friends. We spoiled them with many treats (I will link some of the recipes at the bottom of this page).
Then we made our way back to our limo and were off into the afternoon towards Los Olivos. We came across the cutest wine tasting room my eyes had ever set sight on ….. Saarloos and Sons.
I have to say the atmosphere was amazing and the gentleman who owns the place, Keith gave one of the most inspirational tutorials I had ever heard. I listened with open ears and found all his words came from the heart. Wish I had Saarlos and Sons closer to my town.
Find your way there for excellent wine and chat. It was such a perfect day, glad I was able to spend it with my friends. Thank you Sprint for letting me come along for the ride.Green Leafy Salad with Persimmons & Pomegranates.
