Going Sideways (part 1)

I am so blessed to now be in California “the land of fine food and wine” for the term break. When I woke up this morning my sister and her husband asked me which malls did I want to visit…Malls!?! We are in Lodi which is wine country so I would very much want to see the wineries and vineyards. Lodi is now a popular wine destination with over 30 winery tasting rooms that are small and family operated.

I had my first tasting today at Borra Vineyards. I was given a tour and was made to try 6 different bottles. They are known for their Fusion blends..the best one for me was the 2004 Red Fusion -consisting of a blend of Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet and Zinfandel. The young gentleman in-charge was amused with all my questions so my tasting was on the house..hehe!

Today I learned that one barrel of wine contains 740 lbs of grapes, 59 gallons, 24.6 cases, and 1,180 glasses of wine. Lodi is close to Napa and Sonoma…where I am right now is a walk in the clouds 🙂
