Summer, Las Positas Vineyards and 2011 Pinot Grigio

I don’t know about you but when summer comes around, I want to do as much relaxing as possible. Summer for me means high stress levels at work. When the weekend comes, I want to do whatever it takes to take my mind off my summer work chaos. Last weekend did the trick for me! Julia, myself and some good friends made our way to Las Positas Vineyards. Perfect day for wine tasting. I’m not sure I can do justice trying to explain the calming feeling one can get sitting outside in the garden area at Las Positas Vineyards. There we were….underneath the covered porch, large comfortable chairs, good friends, great wine and a friendly atmosphere. I loved looking around at all the others joining us that day. A family off to the left putting up a day tent for their kids, taking pictures, sipping some wine, laughing and talking. I looked at the table next to me, a couple with a full lunch consisting of giant Mediterranean salads, bottle of wine, a huge bin of kalamata olives and feta cheese….also the iPad playing relaxing tunes from Stevie Wonder. What could top this off? A white wine for summer!
Nothing like a cold glass of white wine to be enjoyed on a warm summer day. Loved the 2011 Pinot Grigio I tasted. Dry with fruit on the front end and a little bite on the back. “Full bodied and bright tropical aromatics and flavors.” Get out there and try this one. While you are there, try two more first class whites that Las Positas offers. The 2011 Pinot Blanc and and 2007 Chardonnay are also fantastic. Cheers to summer! I dedicate this blog to all the people who work their butts off just to make ends meet. Do what you need to do in order to get by, but please enjoy the weekends with your friends and family. Make sure you have a healthy balance, laugh lots and get out to Las Positas Vineyards!
