Wine Country Shenanigans

Grapes at Benziger WineryI just came home last night from a two-day off-site in Napa Valley for work.  They planned an “Amazing Race” event for us where we ended up scurrying around Napa Valley and its surrounding towns like maniacs trying to solve puzzles and overcome obstacles with alacrity and enthusiasm.

My team came in at seventh.  Out of seven teams . . .

Oops.

Still, it was super fun.  And it inspired me to post photos from a few months back from the winery where we’re members up in Glen Ellen, CABenziger Winery is a Demeter-Certified Biodynamic winery.  This means that Benziger has attained the highest level of organic farming for its grapes.  From cows and sheep wandering their vineyards periodically to fertilize and aerate its soils to on-site insectaries, the resulting wine produced from Benziger is excellent.  You can taste and smell and see the care taken with producing their wines.

Benziger has a sister winery, Imagery, where we often go to picnic and play bocce ball.  If you follow my Instagram, you’ll find that I have posted photos from Imagery before.
