I had the pleasure of photographing the CWCMA/NICE Wine Tour this year which was sponsored by Paul Laslo and Rhonda Pilto of Paul Laslo and Associates. Paul Laslo and Associates is one of the premier purveyors of advertising specialties and promotional products, and I must admit that I snooped through their website after our play day at www.plapromo.com and after doing so, I am fairly confident that they have EVERYTHING! In addition to that, they are excellent hosts.
We had the pleasure of visiting four of Temecula’s finest wineries. We started with a very rare behind the scenes tour at the beautiful South Coast Winery, sampled some amazing wines, including my favorite which is a mourvedre that isn’t scheduled for release until this November. We then moved on to Monte De Oro where we had a fabulous lunch. The chef and sommelier were there to guide us through the menu and proper wine pairings which was a very special treat. After that we were on the road again to Renzoni Winery where we were greeted by his amazing staff and more wine tastings. We finished up our tour at the beautiful Lorimar Winery for even more tastings! It was definitely a completely full day, fabulous wines were tasted, amazing food was had and new friends were made. I look back on these and cannot help but smile at what a great day we had.
