I have girlfriends from all over California, and when we finally found a date that would work for all of us to go wine tasting, I knew I was going to take them to Rendez-vous Winery Sacramento. Many of them have been to fancy and famous places for wine tasting like Napa and Italy, but I wanted to show them the quainter, more personal side of local wineries.
We arranged for a limousine to pick us all up from my house and we went to brunch, followed by a nice wine tasting at the Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg. We went to Fox & Goose for brunch where we started with some mimosas and a hearty breakfast—we knew that we would need some serious sustenance if we planned to have a fun girls day of wine tasting.
Getting a limo was a great idea because we didn’t have to worry about who was going to drive—we didn’t have to worry about driving after going wine tasting and that was really nice for a change. When we got to Rendez-vous, all of the girls knew why I had chosen to spend so much time at that particular winery. First of all, the wine was delicious. Secondly, it was amazing that we got to try other things as well.
In addition to the lovely wine we tasted at Rendez-vous, they also gave us samples of olive oil and balsamic vinegar—the two of those things being our favorite things to munch on. When we go to restaurants together, we always ask fore more of the following: wine, bread, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
This was a fantastic day and spent with some of my favorite people on the planet. The good folks at Rendez-vous made the whole things even more enjoyable because they made the day an experience. I don’t get to see those girlfriends very often anymore, so it was great to show them around my home turf just a little bit.
The next time I go back, I will buy even more wine than I did before. Mostly because since there were so many of us, I could hardly fit the whine in the limo that I bought that day!
