A few weeks ago, I took a road trip up to San Jose, CA (#CaliBloggerRoadTrip) to attend the 10th anniversary of BlogHer with a fabulous group of women. BlogHer is probably the biggest blogging conference in the US and it attracts a wide cross section of mostly female bloggers from all over the country to come and learn about the latest and greatest on the blogging landscape, network and connect with brands that want to work with bloggers. I was fortunate enough to take a fabulous road trip from LA with social media powerhouse Kitty Bradshaw, her Aunt Mitzi and my blogging sista Stacy Cox, and as you can imagine lots of fun adventures ensued!
However, one of the highlights of this roadtrip took place after BlogHer, when we headed up to Healdsburg,CA in the heart of wine country, to meet and have brunch with the amazeballs Jen Wall (aka Pinky Toe) the Barefoot Winemaker since 1995. We met Jen at a delectable gorgeous foodie restaurant called Barndiva (yes, it’s an actual barn but very modern & chic inside) in the adorably quaint town of Healdsburg to enjoy brunch and sample Barefoot Wine’s Barefoot Bubbly Fusions and get a sneak peek of their newest flavor release Peach Fusion.
Barefoot Wine is the most awarded wine brand in US competitions and their Bubbly Fusions have been wildly successful and award winning as well. These impressive sparkling wines come in four flavors (Berry, Tropical, Citrus and Peach) and are infused with gorgeous full-bodied slightly sweet combinations of natural fruit flavors that unfold beautifully on your palate. And the best part is that you can find them almost everywhere and they are unbelievably well priced at around $10.
And can you imagine what an absolute treat it was to have the winemaker herself, pouring her creations, sharing her stories and inspirations and partaking is this beautiful food and wine experience with us? AMAZING! And what I loved most about Jen, was that she kept repeating that she is all about creating wines that are accessible, approachable, food friendly and unpretentious and it’s no surprise that’s exactly what Barefoot Wines are all about!
