Frog's Leap Winery

For our 2nd winery, we went to Frog's Leap Winery. We tried to go here a few years ago without a reservation and it was so packed, we couldn't get in. I loved the look of this winery because it is essentially a big open home with a big outdoor porch. Very different look from many wineries and just seemed like a relaxing place to be. 

We made a reservation for the 2:30 tour that included a tasting. We arrived a little early and were immediately given a glass of wine while we waited. Now that is service!

 There were 8 of us on the tour and it was fun! Our tour guide was young and free flowing with the wine! We learned how the winery makes organic wine and dry farms their wine v. using an irrigation system.

We walked through the vineyards and learned about the company. The owner still works at the winery and his dog roams the grounds. They also have a farm on the land where they raise chickens and grow vegetables. They sell their goods to local restaurants

The wines here were pretty reasonable and we went home with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel. 

What a great day!! It was so warm, sunny, and relaxing. A perfect birthday!!
