So we spent the afternoon wine tasting in Carmel Valley and well that was interesting! We decided to take the bus because we didn't have a rental car and surprisingly enough there was a grapevine express that took us to some of the cellar doors.
Now I have to say that first of all I find Californian wine overpriced and not that tasty! Second, every winery charges you $5 per person for a wine tasting and then they proceed to give you a whole bunch of elitist attitude... Not cool!
We've given California a couple of chances now and every time we're disappointed. It seems that the only thing people care about here is money and social standing and the scenery is quite blah really. Give me the wineries of Adelaide or the friendliness of Texans any day!
