Sam had another day off so we headed to wine country. We started out in Berkeley with a lovely walk to Rick and Ann's for breakfast. It was a perfect morning, we had seating outside overlooking the crazy huge Claremont Resort.
We went to Sonoma first for a little tour and tasting at Sebastiani's.
This is at the Beringer winery in Napa. This was such a great house. I can't believe that back in it's day it only cost $30,000 to build. It has gorgeous hardwood floors, stained glass windows, carved molding, hand painted trims. Amazing.
Of course we had to stop at the CIA (Culinary Institute of America) I would have loved to dine there, (it was a little pricey-not too bad though) We did get there just in time to take a peek inside to drool at all the great kitchen equipment in their gift shop.
