Wine Tasting Weekend

About a year ago we were at a fundraising benefit and my husband bid on a live auction item. After a bit of back and forth bidding, he “won” it. The item was a weekend wine tasting trip for 8 with dinner and lodging at a winery estate home.

The details were:
“Enjoy a day-long, private tasting experience in Sonoma County and finish off with a night stay in our beautiful estate house overlooking the Russian River for up to 8 people.  Start your day of tasting by gazing at one of the best views of the Russian River Valley with food pairings and an owner-guided tour.  Visit Christopher Creek Winery to taste the award winning wines along with some from our sister wineries, Benevolo Wines and Foppoli Wines.  End the day at the tasting lounge and Old Redwood Brewing Company in Windsor, and then come home to a spawning winery estate house to enjoy dinner for 8 prepared in your kitchen by a private chef.”

We asked three other gay couples to join us and had a blast last month up in the wine country of Healdsburg and Windsor, CA. Here’s the evidence:
