Today was a day of unplanned discoveries. We started by going to one winery and had so much fun enjoying a flight of wine samples that we had to try a few more.

Another tasting at a second winery.......nice!!

Along the way we discovered fruit stands with freshly picked strawberries and blueberries.

These fake fruits are placed out front to encourage drivers to stop. The real fruit is on the other side.  Notice the sign.

We were amazed we could buy 3 packages of fresh strawberries for only $5

We are so famous buying wines and fresh fruit that they named a street after us!

At a third location called Simonian Farms we bought more strawberries and also tried fruit wines like pomegranate, blackberry, mango, apricot, and plum. Ed really liked the blackberry so we bought a bottle. Charlene tasted and picked a bubbly Moscato D’Asti, an import from Italy. Now we have enough wine for at least a day.  😉
