My husband Drew and I went up to the Santa Barbara wine country region this past weekend to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. Whoo hoo!

Our friends Kristen and John came along and we were so glad that they did since they've been going up there for the past 10 years and knew exactly where to take us.

We lucked out because Kristen & John are wine club members, so we got to taste from some of the best wineries up there, a few of which were featured in the movie Sideways. Sanford and Andrew Murray were holding Open Houses so not only did we get to taste the wines, but we had a great selection of food to pair with them!

I learned so much from Kristen and the winery staff this weekend about wine that my head was about to explode - or was that from all the wine?

For dinner, we headed to their favorite spot, The Hitching Post - which also happens to be the restaurant where Mya worked in the film. The steak and duck were awesome. Very flavorful, juicy, and tender. I'm salivating just thinking about it.

Must go find food now.
