For this post, I am going to be concentrating on the BOGO Free Sonoma wine tastings that are located near STS airport. So, if you're flying into STS airport and get in early enough, you could be wine tasting in less than 15 minutes. On our first day, we landed at STS airport around 11:30 a.m. and were planning on meeting our friends around noon. That meant we had enough time to fit in two

For this particular day, we decided to head a little west of Santa Rosa and try out the Sonoma wines over there. We started out at Red Car Wine Co., then Fog Crest Vineyard, and ended the day at Balletto Vineyards. All three wineries are super close to each other so it was nice to not feel rushed to make it to the next winery. But to be honest, we were still late to two

If you don't already know about the Sonoma wine tasting Visa benefit, make sure you read this post first! On this day, we decided to head north of Santa Rosa towards the Healdsburg area. Most of the Visa Sonoma Wine Tasting Benefit wineries are around Healdsburg so you have a lot of places to chose from. Here's a map I made so you can visually see where all the wineries are. We chose these three

If you are a wine lover like me, then this Buy One Get One Free Wine Tasting deal is definitely for you! My friends and I decided to spend the long Memorial Day Weekend out in Sonoma to do some wine tasting. Sonoma is just west of the famous Napa Valley and has become one of my favorite places to visit in the past few years. Even though I love Napa Valley, it's just gotten

Oahu

There are many lists that will tell you what the best restaurants are out there right now, but I thought it would be useful to make my own list based on the top Honolulu restaurants that I would actually eat at again. I think it says a lot about a restaurant if you’ve already been there and are willing to spend your money back there again. I've been to Oahu many times over the years

Welcome back to Part 5 of my free wine tasting series! We are going to continue on with the famous Willamette Valley since it was too long to fit all in one blog post last time. If you are interested, you can find the first Willamette Valley post here. The day that we visited these wineries, it was, unfortunately, raining all day. It seems that I can't get away from bad weather. First, it was

In Part 4 of our Alaska Airlines Free Wine Tasting series, we are now going to visit the famous Willamette Valley, Oregon! Yes, the prestigious land of pinot noirs. A lot of people don’t know about this region, but it’s just as reputable as Napa or Sonoma. If you didn’t know, it’s actually pronounced “Will-AM-it” as in “Will-AM-it, dammit!” In the beginning, I was pronouncing it the wrong way and was literally practicing for weeks

I love wine. I can’t tell you how much money I’ve spent on wine because I’ll probably start getting depressed. Just kidding. Even though I’m no expert in wine, it’s something I’ve taken a liking to in the past couple of years. I hate going to a restaurant and not be able to pick a wine bottle that I know I would like. So, for the past couple of years, I’ve decided to slowly educate
