For St. Valentine's Day Megan purchased us a little wine tasting rendezvous up to Temecula. She had also swindled Joe and Summer into joining us...and we cashed it in this past weekend.
There were a few hiccups with the tour:
Instead of a tour bus that seated 40 they showed up with a shotty party bus w/stripper pole that probably legally sat 24 or so people. The tour coordinator made up for that one by driving people up and back in his own car and picking up the tab for tastings at the last two wineries...Solid move on his part.
The trip home we ALMOST made it all of the way back to our destination...luckily for us our bus driver(Mr. Personality, himself! This was sarcasm) pushed our smoking bus hard enough to get us off of the freeway and within a few blocks of our cars. Aaaaand by smoking bus I don't mean a bus you smoke in...or like a super sweet bus that is smoking hot...I mean like a bus that is on fire...Smoking bus. It could have been much worse...we could have been stuck on the side of the freeway. Like another wine group I know of. But all in all I'd say it worked out pretty well.
It was a pretty solid day...we hit up 4 wineries...All of them new to me...Briar Rose, Callaway, Churon and Stuart Cellars. It was raining off and on but we seemed to make it around without getting too wet and just wetting our whistles.
Thank you Meggy!
