Everyone’s favorite food-obsessed blogger, Derrick, has finally found the time to recount the first day of the Schneider’s recent culinary quest (vacation), which he’s dubbed the OWF "Eat ‘Til You Drop" Tour.

As you can see, the LENNDEVOURS tour service was in full swing (and I gladly took the day off work) as we visited three of the five places I had intended to take them. Note to anyone taking these two on a wine trip: Even if they are sick and have trouble tasting, they do NOT have trouble talking…and talking…and talking (just kidding guys) In all honesty, their already vast (and impressive hunger for) knowledge made them damn near perfect tasting room companions. Here’s to many more tasting trips together in the future (yes all you Bay-area bloggers…Nena and I are coming…one of these days…I promise).

I’m looking forward to reading about the rest of their trip. I was jealous as Derrick told me of the itinerary while we were at Shinn Estate Vineyards.

Food and wine bloggers are really good peeps.
