Since Valentine’s Day weekend is sneaking up on us; I have decided to share with you a Valentines gift, from me to you! Two years ago my husband and I decided to go on a short little getaway to one my favorite wine tasting venues. Have you ever heard of a small town in San Barbara named Solvang? Well Today I’m going to give you a tour. Solvang reminds me of the movie, “Charley and the Chocolate Factory.” Everywhere you turn there is a candy stores, as well as wine tasting. I love candy! People are also very friendly and make you feel very welcome everywhere you go. One of the first places we did our wine tasting was the Shoe String Winery. Its such a romantic setting, there were beautiful horses and grassy fields that really made you feel you were in the country. Once you start this tour you get escorted into a tasting room where you taste a red and white wine. I prefer white wine and like a sweet Sauvignon Blanc. What type of wine do you like? After we were done tasting the wine, they talked about the history of the establishment. They went into detail how different wine barrels create different tannins and aromas throughout the aging process. I have enjoyed our trip to Solvang and recommend it to anyone that enjoys wine and relaxation. I have linked some of my favorite other places that are a great place to visit. Thanks for stopping by!!
