|Recusci was a gorgeous winery with a long family history.|

|The Coach and I at Gargulio-one of the most breathtaking views all week.|
One of the scheduled shows was at Alpha Omega winery. Sadly it was raining cats and dogs, so we were in a tent. The show was still awesome and the wine was tasty.
Our bedroom had a beautiful view. It also had a goose.
A peeping goose really. “hey lady, you got any snackies in there”?
Passalacqua winery may have been our favorite stop in Sonoma. The wines were great, the hosts excellent and the wine very good. Did I mention they had wine? If you go, make an appointment ahead of time, it will be worth your while to visit.
Our third tasting for this day and I could hardly focus on the wine when all I could think was:
“who is going to wash all the glasses”?
All in all, it was a great trip. Fabulous music, great people, plenty of wine and good food.
I had many favorite music moments including “I’ll be” by Edwin McCain on my last post.
But this very same night we were treated to Ashely Cambell, daughter of the legendary Glen Campbell. She spoke about growing up with him and how she accompanied him on his very last tour while he struggled with Alzheimers.
This was Ashely’s first SIP event. Levi Lowery is playing the violin in the background and Kristian Bush grabbed a guitar to play alongside her. She’d was saying how she’d just met Kristian Bush and she didn’t kow he was in Sugarland, and he said he didn’t know she was Glen’s daughter, but that they were now “best friends”. Ashely learned to play the banjo by a fluke chance while in college; looks like it was meant to be.
It’s amazing to see this is the first time the three of them played this song together.
I had tears in my eyes when she sang this gorgeous GC song that I grew up listening to.
Peace out my friends.
