For the past two years, I have been so into wine tasting. Been looking for any good wine tasting deal on Living Social. Last year, I purchase a few deals on living social and the last wine tasting voucher was to expire this month (Feb. 2013). I just recent introduce to a man through a blind date which a mutual friend set us up. So I thought it would be a great idea for him and I to get together and spend a day doing wine tasting in Lodi, California.
This pass Saturday (Jan. 27, 2103), He and I went to spend the whole Sunday afternoon in Lodi, California; enjoy our afternoon wine tasting at Estate Crush Appellation. I purchase this wine tasting deal in Lodi for $23 which included wine tasting for two with two souvenir glasses and a bottle of wine. We gets to taste over 12 different varies of wine with the highest alcohol percentage of 16. The wines were paired with some cheese and cracker for a better taste and to erase the taste before we try a new wine. Wine tasting was his first time going to wine tasting and he thought it wasn’t so bad. I end up taking the Estate Crush Chardonnay wine as the bottle to take home that come with the deal. It was the best one I like out of the 12+ wine we taste.
The wine tasting room looks like a wine bar and restaurant; quite elegant. However, the downfall is, they don’t served foods. If foods were served along with their wine would be a totally awesome experiences cause the room was nice. Beside the bar, there were two long table set with black chairs; clear window with lots of light shine through into the wine tasting room. The wine servers were quite knowledge also they have a “Wine Bible” books which can also educated us on wine. Furthermore, they were able to answer our questions and educated on simple stuff as tasting the wine.
After that we went to downtown Lodi and walk around for a bit then head back to Sacramento for dinner at Fuji Sushi in Elk Grove. It was a well spend afternoon into the evening with him and also gets to experience wine in Lodi; so close to home, within driving distance.
