It's as green as I've ever seen it. We had a lovely wine tasting at T-Vine, just outside St. Helena. We bought a Zin that must be consumed sooner rather than later, as it is a 2012. It is delicious. We'll take it to dinner with us when we celebrate mom's birthday in May. We're taking her to our favorite Osteria Fasulo.
Yesterday, on our way out of town, we stopped at Il Posto for lunch. Completely spur of the moment, with the help of YELP! to find something suitable. What a great lunch it was. We both practically swooned. If you're in the area and like Italian food, do go! I delighted over the Asparago Caldo - warm asparagus, frisee, pancetta, sherry vinaigrette, marcona almonds, goat cheese & ricotta fritte. Beyond yummy.
As a lover of fine food, I am especially looking forward to eating in France and Spain on our vacation. Mmmmmmmm.
Indulge me here, don't hate me for traveling. I've not ever gone to Europe. And so many other places. This is my time, boys and girls.
