Wine Country Vacation - Saturday

Okay, I remembered to take more pictures today.

Annual Heirloom Tomato Festival!

This morning's run was before the fog burned off. The vineyards don't look as pretty.

Wine Country Historic Baseball! I think the La Dee Dahs need to make a road trip!

The garden at Willi's Wine Bar, where Richard and I had lunch, tasted wines, and discussed what I was going to make for dinner. That's how you know you are food obsessed - you spend lunch talking about dinner.

After our discussion, we decided that Balletto was the winery to hit to look for something to accompany dinner. I wandered out into their vineyard for a shot.

A little fountain outside the tasting room.

Balletto! We loved these wines and grabbed a Chardonnay, a Pinot Noir and a Zin for dinner. I got two bottles of the Zin to bring home with my. My fellow Zin addicts are going to need to come over and sample this stuff when I get back - it's fantastic!

Fair Warning! Don't let your kids run free at Balletto. They mean it!

Prepping for dinner!

This shot is just to make David jealous. 
It's The Knife[tm], David. It remembers you.

Chris set the table before dinner out on the back patio. This is the last picture of the day, because dinner turned out very very tasty, and we had three bottles of wine.
