Wine Country Escape
This Summer has been unusually cold and foggy in the bay area, so I planned a quick escape to the wine country just North of me. I was not alone with this idea and I soon joined a long line of cars heading towards the Napa and Sonoma valleys. It was nice to get away from the cooler weather and be in the middle of vineyards filled with maturing grapes. Harvest will begin in about a month and last till the first rains of October. I visited a few wineries to try their new vintages before settled on a bottle of crisp Pinot Gris, after a few glasses it was time to head back South into the cold wind and fog.
