Welcome! This is the place I write about Things I Notice in my daily walkabouts as well as what I might think about things in my world.

Sonoma Cellar - Outstanding Wine!

Old Town Alexandria is one of our favorite places to visit...we love the ambiance, architecture, friendliness, friends, and the food & wine establishments. And we are trying to get all of them in...so little time. Sonoma Cellar (SoCel) is a favorite, we've been going there since its "soft opening" many months ago. We try to be there when Lance is working the tasting room, he knows the wine, knows how to keep us smiling, and he plays the saxophone! Who knew about the sax thing until one night we showed up and he was playing in their courtyard in the back.Lance is playing Sunday nights in January and February and I recommend you go down and give him a listen! And while you are listening, try the wine! SoCel specializes in Sonoma wines and they carry vineyards that no other establishment has here in NOVA. The owners are transplants from Sonoma and they really know their vino. They also occasionally have special wines from other places but they know California best and we are the beneficiaries of their knowledge (and connections). So if you get a chance, visit SoCel and have a sampler round of the wines they are featuring. I talked Lance into posing...the downside of his playing is that I don't get his opinion on the wines being featured.Sonoma Cellar - Sax by Lance______________________[pp_gallery id="3289"]
