"Wine" Down


My day started at 5:30 a.m. . . whew! Can't remember the last time I had to get up that early, ha ha! I had to drive over an hour to a photo shoot for the mag this morning. It was at Crown Winery in Humboldt, TN. It was amazing and I cannot wait for the Winter/Spring issue to come out! The table top, flowers, and scenery was just perfect. The beautiful vineyards were full of plump grapes and the surroundings made me feel like I was in Tuscany! The main building is amazing and looks like something you would see in Italy! They do weddings, parties and events and every Friday night they do a Friday "Wine" Down. I am wanting to go to that soon! Although it was warm, it wasn't as hot as it has been and we could not have asked for a more perfect day for a photo shoot outdoors!

After the shoot we did a little wine tasting and I couldn't leave empty handed of course. I came home with 4 bottles of wine. They were all quite tasty! I love going to a winery and purchasing local wine!! I am going to try to be good and not open any of them till my parents get here Labor Day weekend, which will be hard, but I can do it, right?




Cheers!

This is my kind of post! I loooove wine tasting and table wine is my favorite. The mixes are always the best. I live in California, and about 40 minutes from Napa, so I gotta say that I have access to incredible wine--love it!
