What could be better than a stunning view of San Francisco on an autumn afternoon while watching the Blue Angels perform? That is why we made a date to take in the wine and spectacle at Dashe Cellars.

Nothing lasts forever, and that certainly true with tasting rooms. We visited a familiar tasting room to have our first tasting of a new winery: Favalora Vineyards Winery.
We love food and wine pairings of all kinds. One of our favorite annual events just rolled around again and we had a chance to attend: the Bacon and Cab Pairing at Las Positas Vineyards!
With the west coast of the United States experiencing one of the worst wild fire seasons in history, is the 2021 wine grape harvest doomed to be tainted by smoke?
Tiktok, face masks, and sherry-finished whiskies – some things scream “the 2020’s”, and one of them doesn’t suck! Okay, so it isn’t strictly wine tasting, but who wouldn’t want to compare and contrast two lovely bottles of whisky from Laphroaig?
Hawaii is known for sun, sand, and surf. During our recent visit to the Big Island, we added a fun new experience to our visit to the Kīlauea volcano, a tasting at Volcano Winery!
It was a beautiful mid-week summer day and we were ready to get out of our house. With the Covid restrictions starting to relax a bit, we were ready for things to be a little more normal. What is normal for us? Why spending some time relaxing in a winery, of course! So we headed over to one of our favorite wineries for mid-week tastings: Ruby Hill Winery.
Our day of exploring wineries of the Russian River was drawing to a close. We had just one more stop on our schedule and it was a good one: Russian River Vineyards!
The Taste of Route 116 was in full swing. It was time to explore a new winery: Furthermore Wines!
A favorite Russian River Valley winery was participating in a favorite annual event, the Taste of Route 116. That made it an easy decision: let’s visit Taft Street Winery next!
One of our favorite annual events was upon us once again. The Taste of Route 116 represented a great reason to drive up to the Russian River Valley and we couldn’t wait to check in with our “home” winery, Balletto Vineyards.
