Williamette Wineworks in Old Town Folsom

Real Estate Agent

Last evening, to kick off an early weekend gathering in honor of my birthday, daughter Jill, rustled a few of us up. There was serious wine tasting forecast, at nearby Williamette Wineworks, in quaint Old Town Folsom.  What a relaxed pleasant evening it was.  A total of 6 wines were sampled, plus an additional teaser wine at the beginning of the night. 

An amazing Crab Bisque paired well with the wines. It was spicier, browner and heartier than most seafood bisques I've consumed in the past.

Natoma Reserve Zinfandel was my favorite wine discovered on this particular evening.  It was full bodied, not astringent. It was mature and flavorful. 

Yesterday had been a beautiful day, until we headed to Williamette’s.  Then it began to rain considerably. However, as the evening progressed, through the Winework’s window in front of me, I witnessed the sky as it transitioned into a beautiful sunset, and calm was restored.

They are located at 824 Sutter Street, Suite 200, Folsom, California

Myrl, what a great evening to kick off your birthday with your lovely family. I'm with you on the taste of reds, not astringent, full bodied on the deeper varietals.  Cheers!

Thanks all, for the birthday wishes.  A couple of days after the Williamette Wineworks experience, I found myself with 7 other family members at my favorite Mexican Restaurant, El Tapatio.

Happy Birthday Myrl Jeffcoat - We both have April birthdays, only mine is at the beginning of the month. Your birthday celebration with family and friends was fantastic! Loved the photographs you posted, including the last one wearing the hat!

I especially liked your ending to a great post sharing the story about the rain and how it transitioned into a beautiful and peaceful setting. What a great way to celebrate your special day doing a wine tasting and ending on a positive note without the rain. So, refreshing! I'm so happy for you! 

Mrs. Myrl, you have a lovely daughter!!!
