Sonoma and Napa are not known for beer, but are known for making some of the best wines in the world. Amy and I have spent the last four days in some of the most beautiful vineyards and tasted lots of great wine. I know this is a beer blog, but you are going to have to read a little about wine for a bit.
We started our journey in Sonoma and made some awesome friends on the way. Friday, I played a round of golf at Oakmont Golf and Country Club, not to be confused with The Oakmont Country Club. The Proshop paired me with a couple of local golfers, which happen to have some great local recommendations. The first recommendation we got was to a great Italian restaurant named Cafe Citti. Cafe Citti was recently showcased on Diners, Drive-in and Dives. All I have to say is that this place is not a dive.
The other golfer paired with me was the Head Groundskeeper at Chateau St. Jean.
Scott invited me and Amy to come visit the winery and hooked us up with some great wine tastings. Not only does Chateau St. Jean have some great wines, but they also have some great gardens. Scott's gardens are so amazing. We walked around the Chateau and soaked up the beautiful gardens that were there.
Well, like I mentioned, we are on vacation and I will post periodically about our trip. I am going to leave you with some photos that we have taken from our trip and I am going to relax. Believe it or not, but wine tasting is somewhat exhausting. Enjoy the photos.
