We were all sore after our hike on the Flume trail, so we decided to take a break and head down to the footlhills for a little wine tasting.  We had been trying the El Dorado county wines all week and have been impressed.  It was a short hour and a half drive in our wonderful convertible, and of course it was another gorgeous day except for some smoke in the air caused by a fire down near Bridgeport.

Our first stop was Illuminere Winery.  The people were friendly, the tasting room light and airy and the wine wasn’t bad.  Then it was on to Holly’s Hill, I had tried their wines before and really liked them.  Last, but not least was Busby, a small family operated winery with lots of inexpensive organic wines….very good.

We checked in to our bed and breakfast, Fitzpatrick’s and headed off for a wonderful meal at Zachary Jack’s.  We are looking forward to getting up tomorrow and doing it all over again!
