Vineyard Bound


Good morning everyone! With fall being just around the corner I've been dreaming of the little pleasures that autumn has in store. Apple picking, hockey, and trips to the wineries definitely top my list of favorite things about the start of the season.

We have wineries here in the area but lately I've been fantasizing about a little trip on over to the west coast to Napa, Sonoma or even Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez. There's something so magical about heading on over to wine country. The picturesque rolling hills, the cuisine, the way of life and of course the wine. It's all breathtaking and can easily steal a little piece of your heart. I know it has mine :)

Hope you all have a fabulous day and don't forget to enter the Betsey Johnson Bow Pendant Giveaway. Remember you can tweet every day for extra entries. Good luck!

You always find so many beautiful photos to post!!

I forgot to answer you quite a while back when you asked me where I was from! The answer is BC! I love the mountains, and I always miss them when I'm away at university because it's so much flatter there!

The photographs are lovely.
I live in California, we have low rolling hills everywhere (along the coast)...I just can't imagine life without them.

We love Napa. We like to stay in Yountville. Cute little shops and lovely French restaurants. Cafe Jeantry is our favorite. Hope you make it soon.

Love all the beautiful photos you have shared today.
We have a lot of vineyards here on the Island where I live. One day I hope that you can make it over here and sample some of our wines.

Have a happy weekend

Jammer said...

That sounds incredible! I just missed wine fest in my area :( but I think I'm just going to throw my own on the back porch haha

Marcie said...

Come to Napa! It is stunning. But honestly, my favorite wine tasting in Cali is the central coast. It isn't pretentious, the wineries are stunning, and the wine is perfection. If you come, maybe we can have a blogger meet-up?!:)
