California Summer Entertaining with Robert Mondavi

Montara Beach, California

Montara Beach, California


Summer picnics are my favorite! Love catching up with friends, while taking in the views of the beautiful California coast.

This year, my photographer friends and I made it a point to have more photogenic picnics so we can practice our photography craft.

We started off our beach wine tasting with this delicious Chardonnay from Robert Mondavi along with fresh strawberries and a cheese plate.


All in great company!

We spent the day sipping on wine, discussing our creative work and playing around with various camera settings and layout compositions.

California beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world! Yes, you can’t really swim in Northern California, although some still do it.
