Those who know me won't be surprised by the dog angle in our wine country tour! Meet Petroni's fourteen year old Bella in her Easter finery. Most wineries, we saw, had dogs of all varieties and sizes on the premises. Bella, huge and gentle, was my favorite.
We were attracted by Petroni's magnificent setting, high in the mountains. Notice the steep slope of the vineyard.
Originally built as a summer house for the owner, the wine tasting site felt like home...even more so because we were joined by our dear Mere Point friend, "KRL."

While on the subject of dogs, "KRL" is very involved with an organization devoted to the rescue of German Shorthair Pointers (NOR Cal GSP Rescue) in northern California. Their wine label was designed from a photo I took of KRL's Caddy in Maine. With 92 photos, he has long been my muse! And because we missed Cooper terribly, while we were away, please click here!
