3 Things.

{Bargetto Winery in Santa Cruz}

When it rains, it pours. And Friday it poured. All. Night. Long. Luckily, the weather cleared up a bit on Saturday afternoon in Santa Cruz. Taking advantage of the sprinkling weather, my mom and I headed out for Passport weekend where we happened across the Bargetto Winery. Here we sampled some gorgeous red wines (including Dolcetto straight from the barrel, to be bottled in 6 months} at the cutest family-owned Italian tasting room, I just can’t wait to go back. Serendipity Spreads was on site too, so we stocked up on organic specialty preserves {and so glad I did - the Valencia Orange marmalade rocked my breakfast big time this morning}.

Sunday was a rough day for a 49er faithful. What did make things a bit better was where we watched the game, California CafĂ© in Los Gatos {talk about sweet hidden secret} noming on sliders and tator tots heaped full of cheese, bacon, chives, sour cream and avocado – YUM!  I have to admit, I’m a little heartbroken today - it was so hard to watch my 49ers lose after such a great season. I’m on seats edge to see what they will bring next year.

 {Congratulations on a season well done. Until next year....}

  2. Ooh, Dolcetto wine sounds yummy! I don't get to go to wineries as much as I'd like to and Temecula isn't that far away from here....-Jessica
