The first weekend of October is almost always an especially busy one for me.
For the past 5 years, I have been a participant in the San Jose Rock n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon.
For the past 2 years, I have also enjoyed the benefits of the Santa Clara Valley Passport Weekend.
Consequently, my 1/2 marathon times have been suffering for the last two years.
How could I ever pass this up?
Wine and Chocolate Pairing at Sherman Cellars (The Downtown San Jose Tasting Room of Creekview Vineyards)
Wine and Cheese at J. Lohr
The cheese was good, but this cab was great.
Wine and Tri Tip Sandwiches at Guglielmo
Wine, Music, and Shade at Aver Family Vineyards
With wine like this, I don’t even need the shade… Okay… It helps.
Wine and Whimsy at Satori
Oh… And fresh squeezed Zinfandel juice!
Wine and Sausage at Solis
Wine at Hecker Pass Winery… Lots of wine… Seriously… They offer WAY too much wine at their tasting room… An irresponsible amount… Just sayin’…
Martin Ranch. They had wine too.
Spanish Wine and German Spice Mixes at Monte Verde Vineyards
On the real…
I really do love these passport weekends…
I just wish they weren’t the same weekend of my 1/2 marathon.
