It’s May…… where did April go?

By | Wine tour

Where does the time go?  It’s now May. April was a month of resolve and contemplation from where I was just a year ago to where I am now. Last year I was dealing with breast cancer and radiation, along with moving and a death in the family. It was quite a year. This year is a year of more self realization and new beginnings. I’m loving where I am in my life and everything is just getting better and brighter. Oh and by the way, I’m cancer free!

I did go back to Colorado in April for my Mom’s 80th birthday. She looks great and sure doesn’t look 80. While I was there I did a little work and made a few wine tour appointments. My website is beginning to pay off and show up where people are seeing it and responding to my site. Yes! Isn’t that what it’s supposed to do? So check it out. There’s info on pricing for wine tours. I also offer photography packages for your group events. A Wine tour guide AND a designated driver. Please call soon if you’d like to book for May. My schedule for May wine tours is filling up, especially weekends.

Let’s Roll Wine Tours!

The rains have come and gone … for now.

By | Wine tour

It’s a sumptuous green velvet turf all throughout the hills and valleys of this beautiful land of Northern California. Here in Marin County our reservoirs are full and they say will hold us for only two years. We still need more rain folks.

On the other hand I have had a couple cancellations with wine tours and photo shoots because of the rain. Oh no!! On the bright side it has given me some time to catch up on home chores and paperwork.

The vineyards are so close to bud break, I’m thinking in the next two weeks when we get some clear and warmer weather BAM! Bud Break!! It’s so exciting this time of year to see the first buds and green leaves pop up through the grapevine shoots.

We’re here for you.  Let’s Roll!

Celebrate Love & a 10 hr. Wine Tour

By | Wine tour

Celebrating Love
As the song goes… “Time….time is on my side, yes it is” and then there’s “my…how time flies.” Can we choose? I think it’s a matter of mindset.

We can also realize that time is an illusion and there is always enough time. Right?

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I thought about all the different ways I had spent time celebrating this occasion. Some a lot more memorable than others and yesterday’s was pretty low key. I went to Golden Gate Center for Spiritual Living and there was a special recommitment service honoring couples with red roses. I thought twice about going but a friend called and asked if I was going, so I did.

The single people (my group) were honored, with yellow roses, who are looking for their beloved and also those who have lost their beloveds. I think everyone got a rose by the end  including those who didn’t participate. It was lovely and heartfelt and I’m glad I went. My community is so warm and embracing and I always feel loved up when I leave.

After service, about 15 of us went to lunch and met at the Dominican College cafeteria. It was quite good and we all sat together and had a great time.

This was my day of rest after my 10 hour wine tour on Saturday. Oh my!

So let me reiterate about my wine tour. I want you to know that you are definitely cared for when you’re with me.

My group was staying at the Olea Hotel in Glenn Ellen where I picked them up at 1 pm. I had their itinerary mapped out as usual. I always do this to be organized so we don’t scissor back and forth and waste time in the car.

Ha! Throw the itinerary out the window and let’s head out and wing it and go to Kenwood, to VJB Winery. This is where we started out. It was such a beautiful day and over 70 degrees and everyone and their dog was out wine tasting. It was crowded but my group of 4 didn’t seem to mind and found their place up to the bar to wine taste.

After VJB, we drove about 7 minutes to St. Francis Winery and the group hung out there for awhile. Next, was Ledson Winery, which they really liked and were there about an hour. After Ledson Winery, we really needed to get going because we were driving over the Oakville Grade/Trinity Road which is very windy and about 27 minutes to Peju Winery in Napa. They loved Peju and bought wine for dinner. The last stop which they were excited about was Prager Winery & Port Works. The ports there are amazing and not only did they buy port but became members as well. It’s nice when the owners are pouring and talking about the history of their winery.

Napkins Restaurant ended up being the choice for dinner since no reservations were made. Plus it being Valentine’s Day was a challenge to get into any restaurant. (Really I’m usually on this and have it all planned out) LOL! I joined them for dinner and they made me feel so comfortable and we laughed and told stories that I’m sworn to secrecy not to divulge anything said that night. It was a fun time and had them back to their hotel by 11pm.

Let’s Roll Wine Tours goes the extra mile and the extra hour to make your trip memorable and a lot of laughs and fun.

It’s time to CELEBRATE!

By | Wine tour

It’s time to CELEBRATE the launch of my new website. Thank you for stopping by!

Blogging, blogging. It’s all about blogging these days. I’m still learning how this new way of getting the word out to all of you works and feel I’m on the fast track to learning more about social media and SEO.

The website has a few new services offered. The Chardonnay, the Pinot and the Cabernet packages are offering photography, wine and boxed lunches for those who want more in their wine tour experience.

Let’s Roll Wine Tours will be going into its fourth year of operation. We’re moving into the low season, which has its advantages. Less crowds usually equals less traffic, but always beautiful no matter what time of year you’re here. We are always open and ready to show you the beautiful vineyards of Napa and Sonoma County wineries.

The fall colors have been simply amazing this season. The crimson reds and colorful yellows were more vibrant than I’ve ever seen them. We recently stopped by Artesa Winery in Sonoma County and the scenery was breathtaking. Their outside area was spectacular and the weather was perfect for tasting a delicious chardonnay.

I plan on blogging a couple times a month (or more) so you can read and see what’s happening with the wine tours. Exciting times ahead and I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Being open to new and creative ideas for having the best experience ever is very important so if you think you have something to add please let me know.

Let the good times roll!
