Over the weekend we had the unique pleasure of getting a sneak peak of what's to come at next month's @passporteldorado wine adventure.
We pulled up to our first stop and I was instantly sold when we were greeted by a sweet yellow lab at a new winery called @rucksackcellars. The wines may be young but the owners and winemakers have decades of experience at another local winery you may have heard of, @madronavineyards. We especially enjoyed their high acid, crisp barbera rosé and chenin blanc that will be perfect this summer. .
Not only did we enjoy their wine, but we love their whole philosophy; from the style of their wine to living sustainably and everything in between.
A few interesting facts:
-The owners are also the winemakers
-Their grapes are organically grown
-The tasting area is set outside in beautiful @applehillca
-You get to take home a stemless plastic cup (perfect for backpacking/picnicking) and if you bring it back, your tasting fee is waived
-All of their wines are the same price to not discourage you from buying the wine you REALLY want!

Hello Instagram world!!! I'm thinking of organizing a Spring seed swap and am wondering if anyone was interested in joining in? It would only cost $8 (the price of shipping) and 20 or so packets of your favorite viable organic seeds! I'm hoping to get a finalized group of about 20 people together soon! DM your email if you're interested and can commit to the swap! 💚🌱💚🌱💚🌱💚🌱💚🌱💚🌱💚
Ricotta, chopped herbs, EVOO and of course some fresh crusty bread can make the most delicious and simple appetizer. Check out our Fresh Herb & Ricotta Crostini video. 🎥 🌿🌱#eatfresh#eatclean#eat#extravirginoliveoil
