A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of checking out the new axr tasting room in Calistoga- it was the day of my birthday, the final day of our wine weekend trip and after that last taste, it was time to go home. Imagine my surprise when the best wine I've had all weekend was on the last day at the last location! And not only was it the best wine but it was the best tasting experience. Their sommelier took the time to explain the history of the property and how it was all the rage during the era of prohibition, potentially haunted and the ghosts of the past pop up every so often, all while pouring copious amounts of wine to us and feeding us Ruffles topped with sharp shredded cheese. To say I was impressed was an understatement. You must try this location out if you are in Calistoga, it is truly a gem in the rough, ask for David and tell him I said hi!

Summer you were a sweet one. I will never not say Summer is my favorite month, I'm not sure how that will change in the future but for now it is. It captures all my favorite things — HOT weather, a time to splurge on three week vacations somewhere far away (preferably with an Aperol Spritz in hand), my birthday month, and impromptu trips to wine country to experience fields of lavender like those above.
