My mom owned an antique shop in San Francisco, called Thelma Dangerfield's. Collecting and a love for vintage is in my blood. There is nothing like finding a good treasure! I am a daughter, wife, mom, cook,Substitute teacher, Girl Scout Leader and I love to entertain.
Just before Thanksgiving our friends invited us to the wine country. We love going there with Jennifer and Sawyer. Not only are they great company, but they belong to the wine clubs and as guests our tasting is free...nice perk.
We met here at, Gundlach Bunschu. An old favorite, that I haven't been to in a long time.
Let the tasting begin!
Here are our dear friends, Jennifer and Sawyer. We knew Lucas would make many friends when he started Kindergarten over 7 years ago. It turns out we did too.
After a lot of tasting....some nice warm coffee really hit the spot
Ringing the bell and running. Who showed them that rope? :)
Our next stop....Buena Vista. I remember coming here with my parents, when Jennifer and Sawyer mentioned it had undergone many changes I felt nostalgic and sad. I was pleasantly surprised with the stunning transformation. It's just beautiful.
New outdoor tasting bar. Of course! So clever, after all, these pictures were taken in November and you can see we enjoy a lot of great weather in Northern California...this is so smart!
No surprise the new owner is French when you see this gorgeous courtyard.So much beautiful French flair.
Still welcoming wine tasters and families to have picnics.
You can see the French touch here in the buildings that have been cleaned and updated with gorgeous flower boxes.
They started us off with a sparkling wine. Be still my heart.
Thanks for coming with me today. Have you been to The Californian Wine Country? I ope you get a chance to come, if not.
Don't forget the shopping at the town square in Sonoma....
This could be very dangerous after a few glasses of wine.
You might ask, "How could you do all that with children?"
Yes, we made some good friends 7 years ago in Kindergarten, didn't we?
