Time to Wine Down

When I’m not gutting an old school bus in preparation for building it into a tiny home on wheels, you can probably find me drinking wine. I am a self proclaimed oenophile, a lover of wine. Between all the home improvement and prepping, one must find time to wine, er wind, down. Haha see what I did there? I’m also a pun nerd.


Some weekends, wining down means traveling a couple hours north to the picturesque Santa Ynez Valley, enjoying a tasting at Pence Vineyards or one of the other 120 wineries in the region. Other times, to wine down means popping open a bottle of red I received from California Wine Club’s premiere membership. Or it simply means stocking my wine rack with a case of my faves from Trader Joe’s. Their wine selection is fabulous! Below is a short list of a few of my faves you can get at the grocery store chain. Please note, each store is different and may not carry all of the below.

I’m always happy to recommend a good wine to pair with the dinner you’re cooking or something to enjoy on a cool Spring evening on the patio with friends. Currently, I’m drinking Bogle’s merlot. I have yet to try a Bogle wine I don’t enjoy honestly. Once the WOW WAGON is mobile, I intend on visiting their vineyard in Clarksburg, California.

Wining Down can mean so many things. Sharing a glass of wine with a loved one or writing these blogs or making videos about wine – these are all experiences that make me happy. I look forward to the day when the table can be full of friendly, unmasked faces, once again, toasting to good health, prosperity, and love.
