Something that I didn’t mention before was that some wineries did an amazing job at letting people stay on their property. The first winery we visited was Sunstone. When we went up there, I was amazed by the beautiful entrance. You literally had to drive all the way up between the vineyards, which was gorgeous. Then you had to walk under a beautiful tree door and then you were welcomed by a band who was bringing live music. What I loved was that you would get your tasting and you’d be able to walk outside with your glass of wine in the hand, singing along with the band. They were performing songs that everyone knows. I remember that they were singing ”Somewhere over the rainbow…”. And when you hear a song like that you can’t just listen, you know what I mean?! At least I’m like that. I just want to sing out loud! 😉 Continue reading
The cool thing about Los Olivos is that all the wineries are pretty close to each other. Most of the people who go there just hop from one winery to another. Every winery has something unique. One had super cool quotes hanging on the walls, another one had a photo booth and cupcakes and another one had a beautiful garden. There is a perfect winery for everyone! You just have to explore the area and find the one that you like the best! 😉 Continue reading

On Saturday i went to Toro with some friends.
Toro seems to be like a small medieval town in Spain, that comes straight out of an old movie. I was really imagining myself in that movie that I had in my head. The only thing that was missing were the people who were riding on their horses. When I didn’t see them anywhere, I went back to reality ;-).
The city/town is known for its wine and its many churches, so we went sightseeing and after that we enjoyed a glass a red wine.
