Not every wine-related happening from my recent trip to California was directly related to the Wine Bloggers Conference.

One non-WBC event was a trip to C. Donatiello Winery in Healdsburg. I'll be writing more about the visit and the wines (which were among the best I tasted on the trip) but for now, I wanted to share this video I took of owner Chris Donatiello showing us the aroma garden. All of the plants offer flavors and aromas often found in the two varieties they focus on — chardonnay and pinot noir.

Thanks to both Chris and also to Joel Quigley from Paige Poulos Communications who set the whole thing up.
