A bottle of wine, a good book and my hubby. Who could ask for anything more on a lazy afternoon?
Last week, we enjoyed a very happy hour in the Carneros Valley of Sonoma County. We introduced my mother-in-law to Domaine Carneros Winery. As a matter of fact, it’s our first visit to this beautiful location. So – Cheers!
On our trips to downtown Sonoma, we always drive by this gorgeous Chateaux off Highway 12. Last week, the rush hour commute left us sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the highway. So we decided to take a tasty detour to Domaine Caneros.
My hubby helped me shoot this review of our red wine flight. We used my Nikon Coolpix L12 camera.
And my mother-in-law had a blast in Sonoma County. After the winery, we chilled at our favorite Irish Pub in downtown Sonoma, Murphy.

“…living in a lonely world.”
Ok – I’m not that lonely.
I still think of my hometown as a small one. I grew-up in Diamond Bar. It’s in East LA County, between the 57 and 60 Freeways. It’s a fine place to raise a family, with slight conservative leanings. I also dreamed about life beyond the suburbs. Eventually, I made that dream come true – living and working in Berkeley, Chicago, London and Washington, D.C.
Now, I’m trying to make a new dream a reality – living and working in wine country.
That’s one of the reasons why I applied for A Really Goode Job. I also enjoy playing with my multimedia tools and drinking wine. As the Murphy-Goode Wine Country Lifestyle Correspondent, I get to do both and more.

In case you don’t know, I love wine.
I love how it tastes, smells and feels. I also love the wine culture – from the vineyards to the barrels. Today, we’re heading to Lodi for Zinfest. It’s an incredible wine tasting experience by Lodi Lake.
Last month, I tweeted away for Twitter Taste Live. Wine lovers tweeted their pictures and tasting notes from ESTATE in Sonoma. I also met one of the legends in the Cali wine industry, Randall Grahm. I helped the Bonny Doon winemaker tweet his tasting notes. He introduced me to a 2005 Bonny Doon Syrah. He’s verdict: “Silly Good.”
This is one of the reasons why I think I’d be perfect for the Murphy-Goode Wine Country Lifestyle Correspondent position.
