She lives in a beautiful home in some canyons. Each morning we walked the dogs through the beautiful countryside.
I was there to take in my first Wine Club Adventure and an Angel Baseball game.
With ten people tasting, you had to have 40 wine glasses ready, plus some food, Mary made a lasagne, she puts black olives in her lasagne, it's a Jersey thing, but it gave it a rustic flavor that was great! She also made some zucchini boats filled with a spicy black bean filling, I will be making that for my sister when she visits! Delicious!
The other couples brought appitizers, one couple brought brussel sprouts with bacon pieces, YUM!

I was so nervous I forgot to take notes, so I don't remember the names!
Actually my favorite wine was the wine Chris and Mary served on Friday night, a luscious Pinot Noir from Melville winery in Santa Barbara. But the Shiraz's were good and they go great with the bold spicy foods that were served. Hopefully I did not make a complete fool of myself with my lack of wine knowledge, everyone was so nice to this little wine newbie.

I would like to thank Chris and Mary and John (Mary's Brother) for a great weekend of wine, food and friendship! I had a wonderful time!
