Wine tasting in the foothills





Saturday found us wine tasting at some of our favorites spots with some innkeepers from the Casa Tropicana in San Clemente who decided to getaway to our Placerville B&B.  It is always fun to host other innkeepers---and play a bit in our backyard, showing off the fun to do in the area.

Our first stop was to Boeger where we of course had to try the Barbera in the tasting room with Sarah.  As you can see they had other goodies to taste along with the award winning wines.  When you stop in, tell them the Shafsky gals said hello!

Next stop for some Old World Port was Madrona Vineyards.
We also enjoyed the lovely view of the vines and snow-capped Sierra from just outside the tasting room door.  They are holding an Open House at Madrona on May 24 & 25 for the release of their 2006 Shiraz-Cabernet where you will be able to purchase it by the case for $10/bottle.

Our last stop was to our pals at Wofford Acres Vineyards.  What a great view they have!  And fabulous wine too!
