My best friend, my soul sister, and mi comadre, of 45+ years, Andrea, sent me a great wine package for my birthday. Oh, we have shared many, many bottles of wine over the years, and even though we have lived in two different states for 20 years, we still share those bottles of wine with each other. I send her wines from Colorado and she sends me California wines. It’s a good way to stay in touch and to try new and different wines. It is a win/win, although it would be much better indeed if we could still share those bottles together. Te amo mucho Chica!
Andrea sent me a chardonnay and a cabernet sauvignon from Coquelicot Estate Vineyards, located in Los Olivos, CA, Los Olivos has some fantastic wines. Believe me, I have tried many of them and have enjoyed them all. The name Coquelicot means red poppy in French, and poppies are all over California, so the name is very appropriate. “Coliquelicot is on a 58 acre Estate Vineyard and is an organically farmed property in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley. Sustainable farming and gentle, meticulous winemaking techniques converge to produce limited production wines that are a true celebration of life.” There are located at 2884 Grand Avenue, Los Olivos, CA, and can be found at http://www.coquelicotwines.com/.
Cheers! A votre sante!
