Winetasting with Ms. Peep

by winecountrydog & pawlitico

It's terroirific when a human makes great wine. It's even better when a human like winemaker Rod Berglund explains to us dogs and our humans de-tails about his winemaking.

We visited Joseph Swan Vineyards in the Russian River Valley again recently and sniffed out some fantastic terroir. Furhaps you know that the late Mr. Swan was one of California's Pinot pioneers.

Ms. Marsha Peep accompanied us. She was touring Northern Sonoma County in search of nice tasting rooms.

Ms. Peep enjoyed tasting the estimable wines. She likes Pinot Noir a lot.

Our dog-ma appawreciates Joseph Swan wines very very much. How can we tell? Not only did she hang around and taste and chat with Karen, but also she did the unthinkable: She asked Karen fur another taste of one of the wines.

Karen at Joseph Swan tasting room made Ms. Peep and dog-ma's day!
Dog-ma won't tell us which one, but we're betting it was the Great Oak Syrah.

Paw-note: We must mention how much we missed seein' Pappi the winery dog runnin' round. Pawleeze pay tribute to the late great Pappi by enjoyin' photos on the winery site.

I love it...terroirific...that's a classic!
Those corgis are much better behaved than the Vinodogs. Ms. Peep's head would have been dispatched as soon as the package was opened!!!!
