The trip that was once a year in the distance, is now less than two months away. Hundreds of wineries which had been paired down to 24 have been further paired down. Reservations have been made for dinner for three of our nights.
The wineries are still subject to change but here is the current line-up.
Hess Collection (for the art)
Black Cat (invitation from Merrill Lundquist)
Possibly: Whitehall Lane & Hendry
Mayo (Reserve tasting w/food)
Chateau St. Jean
Possibly: Sojourn & Audelssa
We have restaurant reservations for Ad Hoc on October 4th, Bottega on October 5th and Cyrus on October 8th. We may just leave the other nights open for some spontaneity and I am certain we will pass some wineries where we just “drop in”. We would also like to do a leisurely drive to the coast and travel the coast road from Bodega Bay to the town of Jenner,with a nice lunch overlooking the Pacific.
I’m sure I’ll have another update on this trip as we get even closer.
52 Days and counting.
