Guys! I’m so excited to share the photos I took while up in wine country two weeks ago with you! The scenery was amazing, the wine was delicious, and the company was excellent :)
Matt, Albert and I arrived in Solvang on Saturday in the evening and took a trip to The Hitching Post for dinner. Some of you may be familiar with the interior of that restaurant from seeing it in the movie Sideways. It’s seriously one of the best dinners I’ve ever had – if you’re ever up in Solvang looking for some good eats, The Hitching Post is the answer (and although it is a tad on the spendy side, it’s definitely worth every penny)!
Sunday was by far my favorite day of the trip. Some of you may remember when Matt took me up to Solvang for my birthday last year and I shot a few photos at Demetria Estate. Naturally, we felt we needed to return to enjoy the awesome view from the estate’s patio of the grape vines growing all over the hills and enjoy their delicious wine. We ended up staying for about 3 hours talking with the guys who work there and listening to their musician serenading the folks on the patio with lovely acoustic melodies. Oh Demetria, I miss you already!
On our last day we drove a few hours north for a separate adventure which I will share with you in my next blog post :) For now, I hope you guys enjoy the photos from our wine-tasting extravaganza!
