Schmoozing in Sonoma

I went on a Sonoma wine tour with Birthright Israel/Bay Area Tribe. The “theme” of this year’s trip was “I heard it through the grapevine.” We (sorta) learned a bit about gossip/it’s connection to Judaism, hence the title of this post, “Schmoozing in Sonoma”. Also, it’s just what happens when you get a bunch of (tipsy) Jews together. :)
Yes, it has nothing to do with dessert (though there was really good gelato) but it does have to do with food, so I felt like it was okay to add to my blog. :)
There were almost 200 people on the trip, so we were divided up into four different buses. Each bus went to two wineries and all of us met up for lunch at an olive oil company. (this is where the gelato comes in)
My bus went to Landmark and Mayo wineries.

The first was bigger (I think) and had better wine. Though, my judgment might have been thrown off a bit because it was about 11:45am and I had not really eaten anything before we left. The other winery we went to after a quick lunch-catered by Beautifull!-so I only had one (half) glass and it was only okay. But, based on others’ reviews, I would say that overall, the first wines really were better. Also, at lunch, there was wine on from a keg (like beer) made by this guy. It was a cool experience overall. I would’ve liked some sort of tour/more background about the wine, and not just tasting, but I guess there was not enough time for all of that. I’ll have to find time and a way to get back there again someday.
