Birthday Wine Tasting Tour

If you click the arrow, it will play the song, Lodi by Creedence Clearwater.
It was my husband's idea to use  this perfect song for this outing.

One of my girlfriends just had a birthday April 11th. My birthday was April 1st. She invited a small group of Ladies to go wine tasting in Lodi.  Most of us have never been to Lodi, so it was a treat to see this cute small town.
There are many wineries there.

We started the tour at the Birthday Girl's house.  The limo arrived at 10:00 am.

Leslie, the Birthday girl.

Leslie, at home by her garden.
We packed up some champagne, OJ, water and snacks for the venture.  I even made two kinds of chocolate brownies.

Can you find me?

Our first stop was Van Ruiten Winery

Michael David Winery
It was a nice place with a small restaurant , fresh produce and baked goods

Jeremy Wines.  Nice couple, who own Jeremy Wines. They were so warm and friendly and extremely knowledgeable.
Leslie and Shelly

Lunch at the Lodi Beer Company.
This guy jumped in the picture with us, because he said we needed a man in the photo with so many women...LOL

Lunch time.......

This guy showed up with  3 bottles of wine.
Actually his wine was the best of the day.

This is Berghold Winery, which  was the prettiest with
beautiful fountains, patio and gorgeous wine tasting room with fabulous gifts.

A fun day with the girls.

I just finished another blog design.  Go check out Jacqueline's

Jacqueline was a pleasure to work with and she has the most amazing recipes.
