the culinary adventures of a self-described foodie

Not too shabby


In addition to bounty of delicious food we enjoyed in Mendocino, we also went wine tasting at Pacific Star Winery north of Fort Bragg. Our innkeeper John had recommended this place to us, due its ideal location: right on the Mendocino coast.

The view. Not too shabby, eh?

It was indeed breathtaking. There were cute barns and wooden lounge chairs and adorable sheep wandering the grounds. You know what else took my breath away? As we drove up to the tasting room, TC blurted out, “You know, I’ve never been wine tasting before.”


TC, who grew up and has lived in the Bay Area almost his whole life, had never been wine tasting! I was flabbergasted. As far as wine tastings go, the wines at Pacific Star are only so-so. We paid for the basic $5 tasting, and I wasn’t blown away by any of the wines. We then got two glasses of wine “to go” so we could sit outside and enjoy the view.

Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the view.

Whereas the wine was so-so, the view was spectacular. And since we were there on a weekday, we had the place to ourselves for most of the time.

Did I mention the sheep?

This was a really great experience and I highly recommend it!

  1. I wanted to lose my wine tasting cherry with someone special.

  2. This looks amazing. Who cares what the wine tastes like when you have cute little sheepies and salty sea air and the big, swollen sun sinking on down? Dreamy.
