Orange Friday: Paso Robles in the Fall
If you have been a follower of mine for a while, you know that John and I love to go wine tasting. We have been traveling up to Paso Robles for years, but this time we went with some of our neighbors and enjoyed Paso in a whole new way. I don’t know what was more fun: drinking fabulous wine in one of the most gorgeous places in CA or having a blast with some of our closet friends. One of the main reasons we went to Paso was for the annual Justin Winery Holiday Party. Our dear neighbors, who are members of Justin Winery, brought us to the winemaker’s home. If you want to make your wine club members happy, treat them to five types of wine and appetizers like Polenta squares and yogurt shots. Now I am HUGE fan of this incredible wine. One of my favorite things about where I live is that we have the BEST neighbors one could ask for. From our awesome times sipping wine or tea on the front porch to our weekly hang outs, John and I are so blessed to have these people in our lives. As Julie says, the blond in stripes, neighbors are like family. You don’t choose your neighbors, like you don’t get to choose your family, but you are really blessed when you get good ones. These people have proven to be more than just neighbors to us, but true community and family. I love you guys. I love that we were traveling with friends that could actually take a good picture of John and I. Thanks Justin! Justin & Julie ventured up to the Justin Winery because of their common name. Little did they know at the time that Justin Winery is one of the BEST wines in Paso. And can I just mention, you guys are adorable!!! This is Kasey, who is a bright ray of sunshine. I just love her! So there is a short period of time, actually only one week, where Paso Robles experiences fall colors and we just happened to be there during that one week. Praise God, it was gorgeous! When we drove up at Niner Winery and saw this majestic valley of gorgeousness, I had my friends stop the car and I ventured out in my rain boots to get these perfect shots. Incredible views and oh so yummy wine. Perfect combo! We ended our trip with some yummy Pinots from Windward Vineyard, which had some gorgeous wines and views. We left just in time before the huge storm rolled in. God is good.
