A SPRING MOMENT IN WINE COUNTRY

AN ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL AFTERNOON
     Friends Bob and Jan were up in the Paso Robles Wine region and staying at the guest house at Bianchi Winery where the tender new growth is out.
    It became a good reason for a visit and dinner in the guest house.  
     The weather also provided marvelous hospitality. Dry, mid 80's, cooling breeze.
  On the east side, that portion of the Paso appellation east of the 101, the greening and budding is on.
     Jan does business with Bianchi and knows the product well
which added to the charm of the evening's menu.
     The Paso region was in its spring glory.


  As the sun began its descent, Bob went to work with the beef and mushrooms while the roast chicken I had been minding, was ready for viewing.

 Diane from Bianchi and a friend of Jan's and Chuck joined us. Sadly we were having such great time I failed to get pictures of Bob's superb rendering of Hearst Steaks, or the salad, or Lana's homemade bread and Thai Noodles. Suffice it to say
it was a splendid spring afternoon and evening in Wine Country. 
Cheers.
See you down the trail.

  1. Amazing pictures. Who wouldn't love to live here. As far as wine goes, I've gone out of my way to maintain an uncultivated palate. I'm happy with anything.
