cupcakes and wine tasting at sarloos and sons

This past weekend I enjoyed a day of wine tasting to celebrate one of my closest friend's birthdays. We headed up to Los Olivos in a limo with about 18 friends, enjoyed some delicious homemade breakfast sandwiches and mimosas, and stopped by three wineries. Of course, there was the obligatory stop at In n Out on the way home.

The second tasting room of the day was Sarloos & Sons - one of my absolute favorite wineries in the area. They have delicious wines, amazing stories behind each bottle, and beautiful labels. Sarloos' Extended Family (pinot noir) won me over, and I left with a bottle to bring home.

Sarloos also offers a pretty unique tasting option - cupcake and wine pairings. Enjoy Cupcakes puts together a flight of six brilliant miniature cupcakes. Each cupcake is meant to be paired with six unique wine tastings. The caramel corn cupcake with vanilla bean cake, caramel filling, vanilla frosting, and caramel corn garnish was ridiculously good.

The cupcake and wine tasting is such a fun getaway and Sarloos' tasting room staff could not be nicer. I've gone for a weekend holiday with Josh and all of my best girlfriends for my bachelorette party. Both times have  been memorable experiences.

  1. OoooooMG...cake and wine are the ultimate guilty pleasures. Looks divine!

    Do let me know if you try the sweet pocket pies; I'd love to hear how they turned out!

    1. The wine/cupcake pairing is truly delicious! I'm dying to make the sweet pock pies this weekend - if not, by the end of the month. I will definitely shoot you an email when they're done. They look so good - i'm afraid i'll be burning my mouth eating them straight from the oven.

  2. I just couldn't leave your website before telling you that I truly enjoyed the top quality info you present to your visitors? Will be back again frequently to check up on new posts. Wine Merchants
