I feel like Montjuic is one of the less appreciated places in Barcelona though it is one of the oldest and has quite an interesting history. It also is good exercise if you walk up from the city and ... Read more

LocationAround 4-5 hours drive from the Las vegas main strip. It depends which side of the canyon you want to go. There are different sights for the place as its spread in a miles and miles.Experience ... Read more
WWWOOOOOOOWWWWWW this Is the first word you will say when you will.be at this place its just wow marvelous creativity of the nature, you just get lost in its beauty and the exceptional carving of the nature. There are many spots to click picture so choose whichever is the best for u. Be careful because not all the place have the safety barriers, which is good also so u an have better view but keep always the safety first in your mind. She you are done with the picture session, just sit and observe the place even for 5 minutes but do it, you will find yourself closer to the nature ever. ServiceWe were at the north rim so there was a observatory and a sovinier shoot there so u can buy sone stuff to keep as a memory. There was no restaurant anything like that around just keep water with u as you are going to walk around a bit which is worth doing. There is no entrance fee for this place. Other then if you are planning to do the skywalk which I guess is at the south rim. Hope this will be helpful for you.

Robert Biale Vineyards

Let me address the elephant in the room before I write anything more: I didn't like the wine at Robert Biale Vineyards. It's not just that I didn't like it, I really, really didn't like anything I was ... Read more
poured. That being said, my experience was quite lovely and the hospitality was warm and friendly.I booked a reservation for two people on a Monday at 10 am. I'm a GEMS member so Biale extended a 2-for-1 tasting offer, which meant two of us would get a seated tasting for just $30. I arrived right on time and wandered the grounds trying to find the entrance to the tasting room. It's a bit confusing but once you find the correct parking area, walk straight back as far as you can past the chicken coop (yes, really), towards the vines.We were seated at a high top teak table with great views of the vineyard. The seating area was covered and a little chilly with the morning breezes blowing through. Our table was set with a wine glass for each of us and a tasting menu with price sheet. Nothing more. Of course, the ubiquitous Wine Club pamphlet was also present.Since all of the wines we tasted were reds, I was surprised that there weren't any crackers or other small palate cleansers on the table. We weren't even offered water! Perhaps that would've helped me distinguish some of the flavors (although of course a cracker would not have made me enjoy the wines). At a minimum, it would've given me more gusto to power through some of the wines, especially the ones that I truly didn't care for.There was one other table with two guests already seated, but they were a bit away from us so it felt very private. Our host, a laid back, hippie surfer dude type, was delightful. He spoke in such hushed tones that I felt like I needed to whisper back to him. All of this set a quiet and relaxing mood, which really added to the homey farmhouse atmosphere.Biale makes a laundry list of different Zinfandels, but none appealed to my palate. The fruit is definitely a softer style (with what the winery likes to call "nuanced flavors"), but I just call it flat and boring. I do tend to enjoy the jammy, bold, and spicy Zins, and this isn't where you'll find that style.We tried five wines at our tasting: the 2016 Black Chicken Zinfandel ($48, light and thin in both color and flavor), the 2016 Old Kraft Zinfandel ($52, tasted like an identical twin to a pinot noir), the 2016 Varozza Zinfandel ($52, restrained old world style), the 2016 Royal Punishers Petite Sirah ($48, the darkest in color but boring fruit), and the 2015 Dessert Wine ($65, not too sweet and aged in Burgundian oak). I found all of the wines to be overpriced for what they were, but we left with a bottle of the dessert wine because it was the one we sort of enjoyed. Perhaps our host picked up on the fact that we didn't really like the wines because he waived both of our tasting fees, which I thought was extremely generous.I'd caution you to do a little research before booking a tasting here, and make a point to try at least one or two of these wines beforehand. It felt a little awkward since it's extremely rare to go to a wine tasting and enjoy nothing that was poured.This is a very leisurely tasting so allow at least 90 minutes. Even if you aren't a fan of any of the wines, you'll surely appreciate the view.
