a little whine

so my mom is gonna do a nother thing on whine...

mom here. i going to tell you about a couple of my favorite wineries on the west coast. all are fairly inexpensive, so here goes.

back in the early 80's i went to seattle with a friend to see another friend and to see the grateful dead play in seattle and portland. during the Portland show, mount st. helens erupted, not the big eruption but one after the big one. when we left the show to drive back to seattle, we didn't know the mountain erupted till we were the only ones on the freeway in our volkswagon and the ash was raining down on us. they closed the freeway behind us we heard so we just kept on driving. the ash was really thick on the road. we made it back to seattle fine, giggling all the way home. our friend mick in seattle , who now is a wine maker himself in Healdsburg, california, took us to Chateau Ste. Michelle. outside of seattle, they have a really good chardonnay.

one of my best friends in sacramento, now retired to yuma AZ, took me to a wine dinner for the vintners Boeger from Placerville, ca. their barbera and cabernet franc are to die for. the dinner was at enotria. the food was fabulous and the wine was fabulous.

so if you see these wines in you area be sure to give them a try.

mommie, are yoo dun whining now ??

Hey, guess what? My Daddie's father is from Healdsburg (he lives in Santa Rosa now). He works at Matanzas Creek winery! My Mommie loves wine, but she does not know a lot about it.
