Are We Wine Snobs Now?

This last weekend, we were so very busy hanging out and spending time with friends. On Saturday, we went with Rachel and Scott down to Temecula for some wine tasting. Neither, David and I are big wine people, but for some weird reason we want to like wine. We figured that by going wine tasting, we could get a sample of each one and hopefully find a couple that we liked and then slowly get used to the taste. I have heard that liking wine is an acquired taste and most people don't like it right away. Anyways, we went to two wineries, Maurice Car'rie Vineyard and Winery and then over to La Cereza Winery and Gallery.

Here is Rachel telling me which ones she thinks I would like

David and Scott

I tried several different types of wine. The ones I liked the most, where more of the sweet white wines. I definitely have a long way to go, before I like some of the red ones. I am sure we will go again and I would love to go sometime toward the end of spring because it is so beautiful down there at that time of the year.

While we were at La Cereza, I saw some paintings that I really liked by the artist, Jami Tobey. I would have loved to have bought one, but they were way out of our price range. Maybe someday!

We spent Friday night and Sunday with Tim and Casey at Disneyland. We ate dinner on Friday at the Story Teller's Cafe in the Grand Californian Hotel. We all got the corn chowder and it was sooo good and not a bad price either for Disneyland. Then after dinner as we were entering California Adventure, the gate attendant who was an older feller said, "Hi Robyn" and then, "And you must be Batman", to David. Haha, I have never had anyone say that before.

On Sunday, we got poured on so we sat in front of the fire in the Grand Californian for awhile

I love Disneyland, but I can get tired of it and right now is one of those times. David could go every day but not I. After 3 times in one week, I think we might take a break for a little bit!

That painting is beautiful.

I have gotten burned out on Disneyland, in the past as well. It happens, take a break, and return when it warms up!

The corn chowder at the Story Teller Cafe is AMAZING!!! That is Troy and I's favorite thing to eat when we go down there. I know you are tired of it now, but Troy and I would like to join you at Disneyland sometime!

Wine is definiely an acquired taste. I started with White Zinfandel and then "graduated" up to a Fume Blanc/Pinot Grigio. My first red was Pinot Noir and now I like Cab. It took time, though. A glass of cold, light white wine is really good on a summer day with a salad.

I wish beer was an acquired taste for me. I just can't ever get myself to tolerate it!

OMG you bought the shirt! hahahahaha that's awesome. Hey can you buy a print? I'm sure a print can't be too pricey. Still laughing over the shirt. :)

Too much of a good thing with Disneyland? I went through that. But I definately miss it. I started out with sweet white wines and am working my way up. I love to get some red wine and mix it with Squirt. A friend of mine from Spain mixed it for me and I'm hooked! Maybe you should try?

Jen- I will try the red wine and squirt!

I fell in love with wine during our trip to Italy. Before then I just wasn't a big fan.

I'm definitely going to try that Squirt thing! Fun!
