In my partnership with Wente Vineyard, they asked me to explore what I’m passionate about and blend it with their Wine. Easy enough right! Well, it got a little deeper than I every thought it would.
Wente Vineyard is the longest held family winery and America plus they are known as the First Family of Chardonnay, just knowing those two facts gives you an idea of how passionate this family and business is about their craft.
Well, my “craft” in life is this blog, it’s a blend of all of my passions, photography, music, style, technology and cheese…
I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes those passions can turn into perfectionism and run awry. I had thought of how exactly I wanted to photography my Wente Vineyard passion moment…. me, my cheese plate a sunset and glass of wine. But I was a little late getting to the park; the lighting wasn’t quite right, and I felt defeated. I knew there was no amount of photoshop that was going to save these photos.
I didn’t start this blog to be the best, nor had I run it like that over the past five years. I did it because I loved it, I had a passion for it. I loved the creative outlet it gave me, and the permission to take way more photos than necessary. And I hadn’t started coming to this park to snag the perfect photo for my blog, but to enjoy beautiful sunsets with those dearest to me!
Who knew a bottle of wine could stir up such emotions!!
So THANK YOU Wente Vineyard for bringing me back down to reality and forcing me to check in with myself and my passions. I am back on track now thanks to you!
