We love visiting wineries whenever we have an unscheduled weekend! There are a few winery events, however, that cause us to rearrange our schedule to attend. When we learned that Las Positas Vineyards was presenting their 6th Annual Bacon and Barbera Pairing weekend, we cleared our calendar to attend. This is an event not to be missed!

With Halloween just around the corner, we decided to give ourselves an early, slightly spooky treat: a tasting at Wood Family Vineyards.
We love winery parties, and there is one winery’s party that can make us change our calendar: Ruby Hill Winery. When they announce a member appreciation party, we clear our calendar!
A beautifully clear, sunny day brought us to Dashe Cellars to sip their wine and take in the amazing views of San Francisco. What a great way to spend an afternoon!
It was a brilliant summer morning in Murphys and we only had time to visit one winery. Such a conundrum given the wealth of wonderful wineries along Main Street! We made our choice: time to visit Lavender Ridge Vineyard.
At long last, we made it back up to the Russian River area to visit one of our favorites, Balletto Vineyards!
Winetasting is a fabulous pastime, but some moments just don’t lend themselves to visiting a winery. One good substitute that we enjoy? Tucking into a good book. Sometime, though, a bit of wine can play a role in the book, as it does in the new novel “Dragonvine.”
With spring returning to the Livermore Valley, everything was bright and fresh. What a great day to take a fresh look at Dante Robere Vineyards!
As springtime returned to the Livermore valley, we set off on our annual mission to learn all about the area’s latest wines. First on our tour: Omega Road Winery.
After nearly 20 years creating wines emblematic of the Livermore Valley, Eagle Ridge Vineyard will be closing.
With 2021 finally in the rear view mirror, it is time to look forward to the wine trends of 2022.
