Wannabe Winos on the Road!

March 12, 2008
Well, we are headed off to our annual trip to California. I had hoped we were going to be able to visit another part of CA wine country this time, but we've decided on one more trip to the Dry Creek/Russian River/Alexander/Anderson Valley area, due to time constraints and a few other factors. Plus, we do really love the area, and it brings back nice memories of our honeymoon.

We will be in the area this Saturday evening through Wednesday morning, so really 3 full days. I'm trying not to plan too much this time, and I'm avoiding making appointments on this trip. Any you would absolutely say are MUST SEEs that don't require appointments? And if you have any restaurant recommendations in the area, I'd love to hear them! I'm fairly set on stopping in again at Roederer, so we will be up in the Anderson Valley, and I would like to try to run by Bella and David Coffaro again to taste their newer line ups and restock my cellar with some of their offerings. With that said, here's a list of the places we've previously visited:

Alderbrook
Alexander Valley Vineyards
Amphora
Bella
David Coffaro
Davis Bynum
De La Montanya
de Lorimier
Dutcher Crossing
Ferrari Carano
Fritz
Hanna
Hop Kiln
Korbel
Mauritson
Marimar
Mazzocco
Michel Schlumberger
Mosaic
Mounts Family
Nelson Family
Passalacqua
Pedroncelli
Preston
Quivira
Ridge
Robert Young
Roederer
Roshambo
Seghesio
Trentadue
Wilson
Yoakim Bridge

Thanks!

    Megan,

    Sassy new photo!!

    I would highly recommend getting an appt. at A. Rafanelli in Healdsburg!

    Sublime wine that you can only find at the winery.

    Oh, you've already been to Hop Kiln--that would've been my recommended stop.
    Do you like Chai? You will be very busy and will need energy so I will recommend that you try some Chai Baba Chai (which you can get at most roadside green grocer-type stores or minimarts in/around Guerneville).
    They use recycled bottles so no two bottles are the same but, it's REALLY good! Wish I could get that stuff shipped out to me here!
