A beautiful day yesterday atop the hills in Sonoma Valley wine country.
I was at dog-friendly Kunde Family Estate with @twitchhiker – aka Paul Smith. Here you see him taking a pic for twitpic.
Standing right in the middle of Kunde's Magnolia Lane Sauvignon Blanc vineyard, sommelier Chris Sawyer explains how humans open screw caps by magic. Winemaker Jeff Kunde looks on knowingly, holding a bottle of same.
Next, twitchhiker does the screw cap bottle-opening trick brilliantly! Anastasia Schuster, aka @AccessInspirati, watches carefully. I bet she can now do the trick too!
Does it make sense fur humans to drink right from the bottle? Below, sommelier Sawyer's obviously in favor of using a glass fur tastin' the next wine. Jeff Kunde pours his '05 Reserve Century Vines Zinfandel.
Humans look so yappy when winetasting. Makes me wish we dogs drank wine.
Twitchhiker apparently enjoys the old vine Zinfandel.
Having finished his Zin, twitchhiker takes a break to twitter.
Howl, just imagine: Paul's the first human to travel the globe by the good graces of twitterers!
Twitchhiker looks cool in his new Kunde vest, below. He's the nicest human, really, and he's raising funds for safe drinking water in schools in developing nations.
You can follow @twitchhiker on twitter. Pawleeze read his blog to learn about twitchhiking and helping charity: water.
Paw-note: I'll be goin' back to Kunde 'cuz it's a super dog-friendly winery. Check out their dog hikes and eco-hikes!
