But what an amazing day to be outside! We kept saying to each other, "It would be a fabulous day to be out hiking!" That said and even if I had the energy for it, I don't think my ankle was up to a big hike after the debacle of last weekend. But still, what a day! The temperature was in the low 60's with gusty 20- to 30-knot northerly winds from the cold front. The skies were that once-or-twice-a-year deep blue and totally devoid of clouds.
The crowd wasn't really that heavy when we arrived around 1pm and we were able to taste through the current wines in relative peace. We haven't been winery hopping this year much at all and so we needed to catch up with the current Delaplane releases, especially because I have to do some food pairings in a few weeks. Delaplane is one of the local wineries for which I provide catering.
