We’ve added tours to many of these wine areas, giving guests a chance to enjoy the tastings without worrying about driving. Which is the way a winery tour should be!

What a wonderful article we received from the Tuolumne County Visitor’s Bureau! The SF Examiner had great things to say about our beautiful Sierra Foothills, and “Yours Truly” is mentioned within. Here’s a snippet:
Underneath the backcountry patina, entrepreneurial locals and transplants alike have begun to make these areas more than just a history-and-hiking destination or a through-route to Tahoe or Yosemite. Now, after you venture into sequoia forest or raft down whitewater, you can also while away an afternoon on an idyllic country estate, sipping wines made from fruit plucked off nearby vines, or enjoying a dinner worthy of any bistro table in downtown San Francisco.
