Throwback Thursday: A Trip Down Memory Lane with Sangria

Above photo : Refreshing, crisp white wine sangria at Primitivo Wine Bistro in Abbot Kinney, Venice, California. This is the restaurant I give credit to for being the first place I discovered and enjoyed sangria at, while at a nice dinner with my family.

I am not necessarily a wino – but come to this day, I find myself to be a passionate wine connoisseur. My journey with wine is still growing, however. There is a wondrous drink out there that helped birth this journey of mine. And I can’t believe that I was already well into my twenties before I even ever had this amazing and delicious concoction! That concoction would be sangria.

Therefore, in honor of my first #ThrowbackThurday blog post, I dedicate it to sangria!   I have yet to still discover even more gems of sangria at all the restaurants and wine bars out there, but is has been a pleasant experience so far in this journey of mine regardless! I hope you enjoy my visual trip down memory lane.

It is called 100 Wines Kitchen, located in the Hillcrest neighorbood which is home to a vast array of hip eateries and the like. When a good girlfriend of mine Kristen & I discovered this place in search of a good happy hour, I was immediately taken.

August 2014, Sonoma Wine Garden, Santa Monica, CA. The red sangria did not disappoint.


July 2015. 100 Wines Kitchen. As you can tell, I always go back for more. It has turned into my local favorite.

About the author

Hi! My name is Jennifer Ferrada and I welcome you to my blog. I am so happy you are here. I am 33 years old and from Los Angeles, California, but currently based in San Diego, one of the most beautiful cities I've come to known. Feature writing is my passion, and only just recently I've been able to get back into it again. I hope to become a successful feature writer of sorts some day - whether it be for a popular food magazine, a travel magazine, or a lifestyle and health magazine. I have a pretty open mind! I would not even mind if I get the opportunity to write for a space news magazine -- the universe and astronomy is one of my favorite subjects. The reason I have decided to become a feature or lifestyle journalist is because ever since I was a young girl, I remembered loving reading CosmoGirl! and reading inspiring, real-life stories or advice columns that empowered young women. I love reading about people's crazy adventures in Reader's Digest. I love reading about art, entertainment, travel, nature, food, relationships, animals, inspiring and empowering tales. I was the features editor one semester for my high school newspaper and after high school I went ton to write for The Corsair at Santa Monica College for a year. My story is that I know I am always improving as a writer. Currently, my goal is to become better at food reviews because I am such a foodie in this life! By having this blog, I hope to continue towards my dream and also hopefully one day, helping inspire other writers out there. Most importantly, I genuinely want to get the good word out there -- on the interesting and fun things that life has to offer -- whether it's a gnarly seafood restaurant, an amazing cup of coffee, or a band's new album that you must absolutely check out. Au Courant is french for "stylist and current." My goal is to help you become aware about the newest information and trends in lifestyle. I hope you enjoy your time here! Xo, Jennifer
