Hi There! Hope you’re all doing well and gearing up to start the holidays! Can you believe that we’re practically in 2019? I cannot…
This is also my first time really taking a shot at Vlogging so I appreciate any and all feedback! I’m trying to incorporate more videos of my travels to share with you guys because I think that’ll be more fun and a better way for you all to experience my travels with me!
A couple weeks ago I was contacted by one of my favorite marketing influencer platforms, Apexdrop Official for a collaboration opportunity with IfOnly, a great place to find exciting experiences in your city! They have so many options including walking tours, cooking courses, wine tasting, and even outdoor options. Best part is that so many of these experiences are affordable and discounted through IfOnly. Bonus, IfOnly also partners and gives back to great causes…I always can get behind a philanthropic brand.
Located in both San Francisco and Palo Alto, Biondivino, provides you with a one-of-a-kind wine pairing experience! Yes, wine pairing! Our private tasting included 5 different wines along with 5 cheeses they paired with. The staff at Biondivino have so much knowledge about not only their wines but Italian wine and vineyards, both current and historic. The founder of the winery has ties to Italy which inspired Biondivino and the reason they specialize and serve only Italian wines. There are portraits of several members of her family inside the tasting room.
Our tasting was with Trevor who was such a fun host! He had so much background knowledge of the wineries that all the wines came from. We purchased a bottle that comes from a vineyard in Italy where this is the last vine of this strain…thought that was pretty awesome! Check out my quick video below of our fun wine pairing experience!
P.S. Needless to say the cheese choices were absolutely AMAZING! They paired great with the wine options and it really gave me some insight for when I have wine and cheese at home! We found out that they actually source all their cheese from a nearby cheese shop just a couple blocks away…I recommend checking them out if you have some time and are in the Russian Hill Neighborhood.
Thank you to both IfONly and Biondivino for having us! We had such a great time!
