Wine Country Interludes

As I've mentioned, we're heading back to the big island this summer. On the way though, we're stopping in the San Francisco area for two nights. Rather than staying in the city this time, we're going to return to Santa Rosa for two nights. With reservations set again at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek in Santa Rosa. We'll be recreating a lot from that previous trips, with visits to Saint Francis (where we are now club members), Dutton-Goldfield, which we may join if they will ship to Jersey, J (another possible wine club to join as our friends are members so we know they ship here), Alexander Valley Vineyards (hoping to get some Cyrus), and Sausal (for their extremely old-vine zinfandels). We're also hoping for return meals at Bear Republic (lunch) and Petit Syrah (dinner).

I know, it's a lot to do/see but hey, it's a plan - it doesn't mean we have to do everything.

Oh, and some other things on the agenda:

Lastly, we may take advantage of Wine Country Shippers again (used them in Paso Robles), though in the summer heat, I'm not sure that will be best. We'll see.

LOL -so much for slow travel!

I am looking forward to returning to Sonoma next fall. We weren't really into beer when we were there last so I may hit you up for brewery recommendations. :-)

I know! Totally not SlowTrav; even in Hawaii, I lobbied for a vacation rental but b/c we're staying free at the Hilton, how can I complain?

Jerry, just give a shout out for the brewery locations. Some of my favorites are in the vicinity.
