Jenny Ketchepaw does SLO With Facebook


In the constant search for new voices for our wine 101 blog, I sometimes invite Facebook friends to contribute. When I noticed Jenny and Tim Ketchepaw were headed to wine country in San Luis Obispo this past weekend I watched her Facebook page for “progress”. I’d say they did fairly well and enjoyed the “virtual” drink through them…would you like a “virtual” tour when you can’t go yourself? I thought so…

Thursday: Alamo tacos and then packing for SLO and Paso – wine loving here we come!

Friday, 7:38 pm: Justin – check. Opolo – check – Jada – check – Tablas Creek – check -Meet Nelson and Jeanie at the private 70s wine party because Jenny and Danielle joined a wine club (because they served gourmet cheese) – priceless! Next stop Firestone for tri tip.

Saturday, 11:16 am: Breakfast at Louisa’s in downtown SLO then off to the wineries again. Wahoo!

12:56 pm: Wine tasting at Eberle…Oh, we found so many new wonderful wineries – mmmmm

1:26pm: Barrel tasting at Bianchi. Oh yum.

Tablas – ok. Justin – good. Bianchi – amazing. Eos – very good. Jada – mmmm good fun. Not sure how to blog remotely – I have never blogged. Opolo – heaven. Robert Hall is next.

2:39pm: Oh! Sitting on the patio at EOS, listening to the band and eating an EOS wine infused sausage. Now that is how I like my sausage.

3:50pm: Peachy Canyon – sooooo good! Fantastic.

4:04pm: Jankris has super tasty sparkling wine. Peach and rasberry – oh my! You know we love our champagne!

4:31pm: Stick a fork in me. 7 wineries today – 4 yesterday. Hunt cellars – very good expensive wine but no air conditioning. It is 90 degrees – come on. Wine and sweat don’t mix so well. Apple farm for a nap before dinner.

5:07pm: hmmm- sitting on the AppleFarms patio for their special guest complimentary happy hour.

And then her final post 7:54pm: a dinner on the patio at Novo.

    Next time you venture "way out west" in Paso stop for a real treat at Carmody McKnight winery (adjacent to Justin) Winemaker Greg Cropper is a jewel as are his wines.

    Next time you're on the West 46, stop at Dark Star Cellars (winemaker Norm Benson and wife Susan). And don't miss son Brian Benson's wines.

    Love Jenny & Tim's virtual blog! I totally agree with Hunt – great wines, not so great tasting room though. I miss Paso – it's definitely time for a trip. Next time I'm just going to show up at the Ketchepaw residence and plant myself in the car! Love you two!
