I hope you are all having a great weekend! I am. After our epic race yesterday and the delicious brunch Ann made for us we all took showers and naps (literally on the floor, no sofas for us) and headed out to check out a local winery.
Such a great way to conclude a race day and perfect medicine for our sore muscles. :-D
Grey Fox is in beautiful Oroville which is just outside of Chico, Ca. Their vineyard is kinda quirky, they have tin cutouts of foxes, pigs and roosters all over the place! I LOVED it.
Their tasting area was in the cellar under this reconstructed barn.
This flag was hanging right over our tasting area. It made me giggle… Because it’s so true of course!!
We chose to taste 6 of their red wines.
We skipped the Sangiovese and went straight to the Zin. They were sold out of the Dolcetto so our 6 tastes were already chosen for us. :mrgreen: I like it better that way. Me and decisions do NOT get a long.
My top 3 were in order of preference were:
While tasting the Merlot we were taken on a tour of their new tasting and party area. It’s not finished yet but they are hoping soon. I loved the view from their new tasting room. It’s gorgeous.
It would be such a quaint-quarky little place for a dinner party or wedding reception.
Right now they don’t have any place to host parties and they get requests all the time. So they’re trying really hard to get this place fully operational.
We all really enjoyed the Grey Fox wines.
Dinner was carnitas and Margaritas at Max’s Parent’s favorite taqueria. My camera died so no pictures of the fiesta. ;-)
For breakfast this morning I had a heaping pile of left over potatoes with salsa, 2 slices of toasted Udi’s whole grain bread with Cinnamon-Raisin swirl peanut butter. Green tea and 2 clementines on the side.
Do you want to see the view from the deck?!?!?! Trust me you do!
It’s lazy Sunday’s all the way around. We’ve thought about checking out a few other wineries but no solid plans have been made. Except that we are NOT working out today! :mrgreen:
I guess my 30 minutes of cross training will get scratched. You only live once, gotta break the rules a little bit.
Tell me about you!! I want to know……
What do you always do on Sundays?
Stay in my pj’s until at least 11:30.
What is the best part of “going home” to see your parents?
I live with my parents but I love seeing Max’s parents for all the tasty food!!
Kettle bells are on sale at Target! Do you workout with them?
No, but the sale is enticing me.
What is your absolute favorite peanut butter?
This Cinnamon-Raisin Swirl from the Peanut Butter Co is definitely at the top of my list.
