Celebrating Sharon's Birthday!

Sharon and I left Jack with Amy and took off in the early afternoon to go wine tasting in Somona. First, we went to the Buena Vista winery. The Buena Vista winery was founded in 1857 and claims to be California's first premium winery. The tasting room is in the original winery which is a California Historical Landmark.

The second winery we went to was Ravenswood. This winery specializes in Zinfandels. I was not enamored with any of their wines.

We then drove north to Kunde, but it closed at 4:30 p.m. just as we got there. We drove over the Oakville grade from the Valley of the Moon to the Napa Valley and went into St. Helena. Sharon and I had a drink at the Martini House. This place has a very nice bar downstairs where Sharon had a Lemon Drop that she raved about. We are definitely going to go back here for dinner some time.

We met Pat Funk and Bernard for Dinner at La Toque. The four of us had a nice four plus hour dinner! We used the occasion to celebrate all of our birthday's at one time; Pat's birthday is January 8th, mine is the 15th and Sharon's in the 23rd.

I posted Heringer's in the Philippines, Day 12.
