One of our passions is for fine wine, and you'll see that this plays a dominant role on the travel and friends pages as well. We plan as many vacations as we can in the California wine country, and our favorite weekend activities include spending the evening with good friends and a great bottle (or two) of wine. Maybe some day we'll even have a winery of our own! If anyone has any plans or ideas for wine dinners/tastings, please don't hesitate to include us.

      Here are some of our current favorites:

Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon
Chateau St. Jean Cinq Cepages
Traulsen Zinfandel
S. Anderson Blanc de Blanc
Chateau Souverain Reserve Chardonnay
Graham's 20 year Tawny Port
