The fiance’s mommy lives in a house with a crazy view
Yeah, not too shabby.
On our last full day in California, the fiance’s sister and her boyfriend came up to Ukiah too. They had some key priorities while there.
Mainly, wine and bocce.
Clearly, these are priorities I can get behind.
We went to Hopland, which is a little tiny town south of Ukiah… They have a population of 800. And like a dozen tasting rooms. My kind of town.
We did a couple, then hit up the Graziano tasting room.
Um, see those bottles on the counter? Yeah, we might have tasted all of them. Plus a few more, cause the whites are in the fridge. And, you know, tasted at least 8 or so before we went there.
I don’t get prettier as I drink.
I forced a Lara Bar on the fiance, and ate… Nothing. Whoops.
We hit up one more tasting room and then went to the main attraction….
Bocce fields at Brutocao!
Brutocao has a tasting room, store, restaurant, and of course the bocce. The basic idea with the bocce is that you taste some wines, buy a bottle you like, and then have some drinks while you play.
We, clearly, missed the buy *a* bottle… Although one of those was given to us for free! Score.
(This lead to me drexting Mama Pea who I’m sure loved it. Right?)
Bocce is really fun
Especially with lots of wine
The boys got silly
Us girls may have been feeling just as silly, but it didn’t show quite as much
And the fiance got… affectionate?
But all too soon, it was back to the airport, eating garlic fries to cure the hangover
Seriously, a fun trip.
And you know, not JUST because of the booze.
