We spent most of last weekend in the sonoma area of wine country. We stayed at a favorite inn , ate at a favorite restaurant and went to 3 wineries. 2 were old favorites: Lambert Bridge which does my favorite white wine — a Viognier and Quivira where in the past we have bought zins, but this year it was their petite syrah. Our final stop — hook and Ladder. Really lots of good wines. and inexpensive. We also got a great deal on a case of one of their reds. They were phasing out on label, so they were selling cheap. Sadly ( no not really) it is an older wine and we need to drink it right away.
