A Weekend in the Wine Country

 

wedding trip1 

Naomi and I, along with our husbands, Tom and Bob, went on a weekend adventure together.

We stumbled upon Old Souls, a cool coffee house in Sacramento, on the way to our cousin’s wedding. The four of us talked about how such a simple experience gave us so much pleasure.  You had to discover it on a side alley. The baristas were wearing funky ties and took great pride in making a very lovely cappuccino. We enjoyed the music and the cozy old warehouse with interesting windows. They seemed very concerned that we liked our coffee. It made us think of how we strive to be at Warmth Company. It was nice to be on the receiving end!

We love to put our feet up and watch the sky while reflecting on times past.

Our adventure was to go to Six Sigma Winery near Lower Lake. It is a working cattle ranch with cows, sheep, chickens, pigs and a lot of grapes.  It all started when the Danish owner had an amazing bottle of Tempranillo in Spain. You have to drive on a one lane dirt road for two miles to get there, but it is well worth it. Maggie, a cute farm dog greets you. Judy a cowgirl welcomes you with a big smile and tells you to sit on the porch while she pours generous samples of amazing wines.  All the grapes are from Kaj, the owner’s ranch. On the bottle he states that his wine is for friends and family to enjoy with good food.  We immediately fall in love with the whole place because it reminds us of our childhood and everything we believe in.
