Escape to Wine Country

features a blonde party gal in a limo leaving San Francisco en route to Napa, Sonoma and all points in between! She has some gold leafed bling, check out her earrings, bracelet and hat rim. She also knows how to party with Forbes rated “Best California Merlot Ever”, Duckhorn MERLOT – from Three Palms Vineyard in Napa California. Oh and did you see the grapes hood ornament on the limo too?

 

Where is Wine Country?

Every weekend the roads here in Northern California are filled with people who are escaping San Francisco for a fun getaway weekend. Plus we have travelers who are arriving here from all around the world to visit beautiful Sonoma and Napa counties, lovingly called “wine country”. It’s quite common to see Limousines filled with people en route to wine tasting events. Here in Sonoma county where I live, there are almost 60,000 acres of vineyards and more than 425 wineries! That’s a butt ton-load of wineries!

 

Inspiration

My mother was Austrian and so I grew up drinking wine, sampling my first glass at age 5 or 6 (probably at a Gumpoldskirchner heuriger), and my fondness for the stuff has never left!
I hope you enjoy the first installment of my new series!

 

Prost! Cheers! Salute! Skol!

I had SO MUCH FUN creating this, there’s  a video on my instagram of me dancing while painting this (I’m wine fueled of course) check it out! I love to paint, sing and dance.

By the way….

Over one hundred grape varieties are grown in California. The seven leading grape varieties here in Northern California are Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot noir, Sauvignon blanc, Syrah, Zinfandel. The production of wine in California alone is one-third larger than that of Australia. If California were a separate country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine producer.

Cheers – InJoy!

  1. YNO is for ‘Why no’ or for Wino? I went on a NAPA DIY taste tour when my ship pulled into San Francisco, but couldn’t have enjoyed myself more than this gal. Pop Art, cool!

    • Heehee, WINO of course 🙂 Why No works too though!! So glad you got to experience a Napa wine tasting tour. Thanks for the feedback Maryellen, this pop-art is a new venture, lots of fun and love in making this.. Cheers~
