In case you find yourself in #deervalley and like #nature and hikes, we highly recommend @deervalleyresort guides. We took the ski lift to the top and then hiked down seeing #flowers specific to the area and breathing in the crisp clean air. #travelfornature thanks to @artisantastes for sharing their local knowledge to help us find these special treasures during our #utah #travels

Morning filled with crisp cool air overlooking this #vista for breakfast @steinresidences in #deervalley watching #hotairballoons filled our hearts with thankfulness and joy #travelforthesoul

Great #paella takeout from @bravasbardetapas in #healdsburg and can you spot the #wine we paired with it??? Thanks @domaine_virgile_lignier for your #moreystdenis #wines -so goodddddd #sommchat

Thanks to @mdhousewright and @jhousewrighter for turning us on to @jacksons_bar_and_oven in #santarosa. #snappeas are in season in California and this salad was a pure winner -really loved the fresh strawberry addition. Keeper #chef will use that this summer and then an added bonus of grilled artichokes with lemon #aioli created a winning finish. If you are in the Santa Rosa area and want fresh local ingredients prepared for your pleasure then this should be on your list. #travelforfoodandculture

Add this pairing to your list #baconandburgundy👏👍🥓🍷. Thanks to @lefournil_mt #ciabatta Bread and @ranch_house_meats #bacon in #billingsmontana we had a delish #bltsandwich and all was even better thanks to #burgundy #winemaker @drink_beaune for another lovely bottle of #wine. #sommchat

@lenoiratx has an amazing entree of poulard right now that melts in your mouth and these 2 pairing options worked so well - 💯% Chardonnay #champagne from @champagnelebrunservenay and a 21 year old #bordeaux from @chateau_clercmilon #sommchat

What #wines would we pair with a New Braised #chickenthigh recipe by Keeper #Chef with leeks and fennel and Pernod?? We picked 2 favs: @drinkdujac #dujac #moreystdenis1ercru and @domainelamy #staubin En Remilly. Both were great with the dish!!! #sommchat

Hop off the plane ✈️ in #Monterey straight to @pebblebeachresorts to play the new @tigerwoods Par 3 “The Hay” #golf course -focusing on the birdie and pars and not the others 👏👏👏🏌️‍♀️🏌️‍♀️#travel #californiaadventure

YES they call it #bigskycountry for a reason - after the 🟦 skyline on the previous night, we were treated with 🟨 gold highlights last night in #montana #travelfornature #travel

When we needed some added 🟦🟨 COLOR after a long day of work #billings offered us this #bigskymontana #travel moment which produced a big OHHHH YESSS!

Another fun pairing: Keeper Chef-prepared jumbo lump crab cakes paired with @lauerwine thanks to @vomboden and @rootstockwinesatx 👏👏👏 #sommchat

To drink the #wines of a #winery with the #winemakers and eat #food prepared by the #chefs for the #wine is so lovely and tonight with @gdangerville & @rajatparr provided us with added knowledge not to mention just pure pleasure thanks to all who made this happen in #austintexas #sommchat

Love when we #travel and find a bar that makes their #cocktails with @taittingerusa #champagne if you find yourself in #Frankfurt #germany🇩🇪 check out John F Kennedy Bar @villakennedy1901 and ask for the JFK 🍾#cocktail #sommchat

Thanks to @vomboden for another chance to learn about #German #wine and this time we had the pleasure to learn about @julian.haart #wines. Nadine Haart is a wealth of knowledge and shared much about the intensity with which she and Julian approach their #winemaking and attention to every detail in the vineyards and in the cellar. This is a small estate of 5 HA so keep your eyes searching to find these #wines if possible. #sommchat

When you drive after an early dinner towards your room on the #Mosel river in #bernkastelkues #travels to #germany🇩🇪 #wine region become magical. You feel as if time has stopped and you are floating in total peace over the water and through the mountains 🏔.

What a delightful afternoon for some #wine education @j._b._becker in the #Rheingau thanks to @vomboden we got to see #vineyard management, a cellar visit, and of course taste the wines. We can’t wait to try the #trocken #wines with #japanese dishes as was recommended. #Sommchat

For all those #Sommeliers that are studying and those #wine enthusiasts that just love trivia - here we go with a clue from #heidelberg #germany🇩🇪 : Q. Where is the largest wooden wine Barrel ever to be made, when was it built, and what is its capacity? A. In the cellar of @heidelberg_castle , there stands a large wooden barrel with a capacity of 220,000 liters (58,000 gallons) which was built in 1751. This was built by the King and put in the kitchen of the castle to entertain and impress his guests. The only problem: It leaked! Well at least it shows the presence of the wine culture in the area in that time period. #sommchat #travelforwine

Important lesson learned in southern #Corsica while at lunch @hotelgoeland in #portovecchio: don’t worry if the sky is overcast and it is raining like in the pic in the upper left hand corner because in Southern Corsica 5 minutes later your view will change and the sun ☀️ will shine and the #mediterraneansea water will be clear and blue again like in the other 3 pictures #travelislife

In Old Town #bonifacio #corsica you can find a family restaurant called Stella D’Oro “Chez Jules” established in 1965. Upper left hand pic is a local dish called Aubergines Bonifacienne by some. It is a very traditional dish and this one has now become our ‘best ever’ Eggplant Parmesan which paired beautifully with Canerelli Rose. The bottom left is a fresh local area John Dory fish with olive oil, lemon butter parsley sauce along with sides of potatoes tomatoes and onions. What a lovely lunch in the old town. #sommchat

What is the first thing you should do after #flying into the #Ajaccio airport in #Corsica??? Find the closest seaside restaurant (la table du marche at hotel les Mouettes was a good choice) with the table closest to the water and order a bottle of Clos Canarelli Blanc - #lifeisgood❤️ thanks @ianmccaff @rootstockwinesatx and @lylerailsback @kermitlynchwine for introducing us to this #winery. Stay tuned to learn more about these #wines when we visit and taste their this coming week. #sommchat

What a lovely surprise to have some #burgundy tastings with @yannickbenjamin and @heiditurzyn and then to share a magnum of @domaine_michel_lafarge Rose 2017 in #Bouilland with the @beckywasserman.co team. From the first tasting together @benjaminlerouxwines to dinner last night each moment was a treat. Also a shout out to @elizabeth.gabaymw on the rose for her book! #Sommchat

Always great to see @nico_rossignol while in #burgundy to hear about all he is doing in the vineyard and cellar to make his #burgundy #wines. #Sommchat #domainenicolasrossignol
