Wine country - here we come!

This morning we stopped by Erin and Francisco's new house for the post-wedding brunch on our way to Sonoma. It was nice to be able to see everyone one more time before heading out.

Ben was very good (despite my terrible navigating attempts) at getting us from place to place. We crossed over the Golden Gate bridge and within 45 minutes, we were entering Sonoma County.
The temperature rose about 20 degrees on the drive, which was a welcome change given how I packed.

Our first stop was Viansa Vineyards, and we did a tasting and chose a bottle of Chardonnay to enjoy while we ate a picnic lunch. The view was incredible. We had visited this same winery seven years ago when we were in San Fran for Alex & Marisa's wedding, so it was neat being there again.
From there we went straight to the B&B to check in and relax a little before venturing out to the town square to walk around. We picked a Mexican place for dinner and it was very good. A quiet evening to rest up for a long day of wine tasting tomorrow. :)
