To fuel up and help our cause, our first stop was coffee and food in town. The town is tiny and boasts local produce, local cheese, and fresh made bread. Everything looked delicious and I wanted to buy so much but I restrained myself. It would be easy to grab a variety of things to take to with you to your favourite winery, and have a snack while wine tasting.
Winery number two was my favourite. Samuel’s Gorge sits on top of a hill overlooking a valley. The building itself is rustic Mediterranean place covered in flowers and vines, with a pomegranate tree and an apple tree in the yard. There were also two dogs running around, and you could see barrels and barrels of wine sitting outside. Needless to say, this place is beautiful and I want to live there. We happily and comfortably went through the tasting and loved everything. I could have easily purchased a bottle of everything we tried but I stuck to one bottle of the Grenache. (Mom, Dad, I’m saving this one to share with you!) We were also happy to find out that the wine maker was there, he has crazy side-show bob hair and purple stained hands, and is clearly passionate about is job.
