Yesterday I had a wonderful day with my business partner and designer of Pacific Gypsea, Shirley. To celebrate the launch of pacificgypsea.com we started with lunch at the well known eatery in Carmel Valley, Cafe Rustica. After eating my entire plate of butternut squash ravioli with brown butter and sage in a light cream sauce, we couldn’t resist heading across the street to one of the cutest wineries in Carmel, Cowgirl Winery.
From the zen gardens to the vintage truck perfectly decorated with succulents… immediately you want to move in. The chickens, which make it very clear that it is their property and we are just visitors, will guide you to the chicken feed stand for a little treat before you head into the perfectly decorated tasting room. Cowboy boots line the ceiling and repurposed furniture make this space more than just a tasting room but a place you want to sit around with your girlfriends, drink wine and enjoy the California life.
As if the Cowgirl tasting room, bocce ball courts, and outdoor seating area aren’t enough- just to the corner of the tasting room is a store that houses quintessential chic cowgirl style home accessories and women’s accessories. I couldn’t resist buying a camel Peter Grimm hat and some other little gift items. Now off to my last night of the sound of the waves crashing outside my room before heading back to the beach bungalow.
