The {paso robles} *itinerary.


{day 2/winery #1- gettin' into the "spirit" rather early}

*a huge thank you to Laura, @ Sweet Life a la Carte, for literally mapping out our entire day of wine tasting (& eating :)).  The detailed recommendations, directions, and information was incredibly helpful, and very much appreciated!

Day 1 {not pictured}

arrive... after checking in, shower, look presentable... proceed to winery #1 (before they close for the day!)... eat a huge "cowboy-style" dinner- here... roll head back to hotel, watch the break up (with full intentions to go back out & see "the band" play at the bar after their 9:30pm arrival)... instead, crash from utter exhaustion/satiation.
                               
                      
Day 2

with full awareness of the continued gorging/alcohol-consumption that is to come- start the day off right- with an early morning hike... bask in the glorious spring sunshine.


stock up on "wine-tasting necessities" (cheese, bread, olives, prosciutto...){here}.


head off into wine country and well, drink up {here, here, here, AND here}...


...with a necessary "palette-cleansing" olive oil tasting added into the mix :) {here}.



 
and finish the day with... More. Eating. {...at an incredible restaurant- here.}

                             
Day 3

One last tasting {here}, a delicious "farmstand" lunch {here}, and a traffic-filled, but incredibly pretty drive home along the california coast.





...and arrive "home sweet home" where laundry- & spring break- awaits :).

  3. I seriously want to jump into each of these photos and just live in them! looks like an amazing getaway. the wine is making me thirsty and so is the Dry Soda Water! One of our directors shot a fantastic demo spot for Dry Soda and ever since, I try to go out of my way to stop at the one little market that carries the line here!

    One more thing, the light in these photos is amazing - it's just so warm and sunny feeling! Even though, we've been blessed with mild winter, we don't have this sort of light! maybe it's the city, not sure. but i like knowing it's out there!
