a wintery weekend on the west coast

A few weeks ago, work brought me out to San Francisco, and my boyfriend and I decided to extend the trip and turn it into a long weekend exploring Wine Country. A close friend of mine has a home in Tiburon where we stayed, and spent our days enjoying vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, and Forestville, California. Soaking up all of the beautiful weather in San Francisco.
 Our view of the Bay Bridge from our hotel room.   Bay Bridge + blue skies
  A warm Californian welcome.  Local walnuts to kick off our first wine tasting at Scribe Winery in Sonoma.
  Tasting nibbles at Scribe Winery – we loved the clementines and chardonnay.Our favorite pizza in California! Del Popolo.
Pizza Margarita at Del Popolo.    Wine barrels at Scribe Winery.
   The last leaves.    Holiday lunch at Farmstead in Napa.
  Kistler Vineyards in Forestville, CA.Menu + tasting notes.  The oldest wine caves in Napa – Beringer Vineyards.
  The different soils of Kistler Vineyards. The light soil has lime stone, which makes their Chardonnay have a chalkier taste.   Tasting all of my favorite wines! Kistler whites.    Hall Winery at Rutherford: The Chandelier Tasting Room
  Toasting to Forestville.  Incredible weather on Day 2 of vineyard exploration.
