Went to the Thomas Fogerty Winery in Woodside today for a work event. Beats the office for sure!
I was so tempted to buy one of their $70 bottles of Pinot Noir which was one of the best pinots I’ve ever had. Even better than Papapietro which I love. Instead I decided I would have to return and do a full tasting. Their wines are top-notch. All the New York attendees were trying to figure out how many they could take on the plane.
This was my first foray into wine tasting in the Santa Cruz mountains. I was very impressed with both the winery and the high-quality wine. I also like Ridge wine which is made in Santa Cruz so we all must do a weekend wine trip to this appellation in 2013.
I have to make a comment about the horrid commute back into the city. First, it took me about 40 minutes to get to Woodside from San Francisco at 11am. But the return home took me a good 90 minutes. What a clusterF. It’s easy for me to whine since I’m not used to it. I understand that people have to do it, but holy crap. I’d have to pimp my ride with all the bells and whistles to keep me entertained (speaker phone, audio books, podcasts).
