This post is going to be long and full of pictures but just imagine how long it would be if I didn't split this weekend up into multiple posts!
In February I headed to San Luis Obispo County for my fabulous bachelorette weekend. My sister, one of my best friends and I were the first ones to get there (people came and went throughout the weekend) so we put up a few decorations before relaxing for a bit.
We rented a fabulous house in Paso Robles to use as our home base for the weekend and throughly enjoyed it. Look at this bathroom!
The master bedroom was nice and spacious. I managed to not get any pictures but there were white barn doors separating the rooms throughout the house that just gave the house a cool rustic vibe.
There were two living rooms though we spent most of our lounging time in the one on the first floor. We had so many Frozen balloons (from the dollar store) all over the living room to add a little sophisticated flair. Ha! Ok maybe fun and tacky was the vibe we were going for.
After relaxing for a bit at the house the three of us that were there headed to downtown Paso Robles for dinner. Thanks to our friend Yelp we found a cute little South American tapas place called La Cosecha. So glad we found this place. The food and cocktails were awesome! We had a ceviche with plantain chips and an amazing flat bread among other dishes.
All three of us are not fans of super sweet drinks and these cocktails did not disappoint. I had a pineapple version of a Moscow Mule, my sister had a lemon lavender drink and my friend had a version of a pisco sour.
If there wasn't wine waiting for us at home there were many other delicious cocktails we could have had.
After we got home from dinner we settled in for the evening in our pajamas to wait for my sister in law to arrive. While we were waiting there was no reason not to have some wine! My sister in law was hungry by the time she got there so there also may have been some late night fast food eating. Calories don't count at your bachelorette party right?!?
The next morning after some grocery shopping for some weekend necessities we all got ready to head to our first winery. By this time two of my cousins had joined the party. We headed to Le Vigne Winery for a tour and some tasting.
After a tasting of some sparkling wine we headed to the back to see how the winery operated. We did a couple of fun barrel tastings during the tour before heading back to the tasting room.
Back in the tasting room we not only got to taste some delicious wine but every wine was paired with cheese. Wine and cheese! I was one very happy girl at this point.
I don't think there was a single wine or cheese that we didn't enjoy and many bottles (and some cheese) ended up coming home with us that day. This was the only winery we went to this day and it was a great way to start off our wine tasting weekend. After we finished our tasting we headed back to the house to get dressed for a night out on the town.
That night on the town and the rest of the weekend will have to wait for another day so this doesn't turn into a novel. Oh the suspense!
