on the coast of somewhere beautiful

dear chateau elan,

thank you for such a great birthday celebration.

i don’t think you knew it was my birthday celebration.

but that’s okay.

first,

the grounds are beautiful.

second,

i’ve never learned so much on a winery tour.

(chris was a great tour guide & pretty cute too)

for real.

i didn’t know that red & white wines were made differently.

i didn’t know that the barrels most wineries have are empty.

i didn’t know how to store wine properly.

i didn’t know the difference between corks, synthetic corks, and screw on tops.

& i didn’t know the 3 s’s.

(sight, smell, & sip)

& i didn’t know a wine tour could be so funny.

third,

your wine (especially the port) rocks.

thanks for the great time!

we’ll be back for sure 🙂

p.s.

yes, i am awful at remembering to take pictures.

there will be more on my sister’s blog this week.
