|Tobin James Tasting Room|
It was hard to go to wineries with the kids because it's boring for them so we were only able to go to 2 or 3 wineries a day before we had meltdown city. Nevertheless I felt like we got a nice sampling of the area and I plan to come back again soon (without the kids).
The wineries we went to included: Tobin James, J Dusi, Summerwood, Cypher, Halter Ranch, Justin, and Daou (which we immediately joined their wine club).
The most beautiful winery award went to DAOU for sure, the views were incredible and the wines were some of the best I tried. Justin was very charming and we just love and have been wine club members for a couple of years. They all were very nice and for New Years it wasn't as crowded as you would think which was also nice.
We went to two excellent restaurants while there Thomas Hill Organics and Artisan. Both were just incredible!
The drive was so short for us and the town was quaint and relaxing without huge crowds. We didn't have time to try Firestone Brewery but we have added it to our list for our next getaway weekend. That's the great thing about living in California you can have an easy and quick trip without the hassle of flying!
