February 21, 2015 – A trip up to the Sonoma Valley

We have a notification that our wine club shipment needs to be picked up at Chateau St. Jean. In addition there is an open house at the Eighth Street Wineries where our friend, Philippe, will be pouring some of his fine Stone Edge Farm wines. As it turns out Chateau St. Jean is also having a pick-up party so we decide to make a day (and night) of it.

After doing a tasting at CSJ we head down to the Eighth Street Wineries Open House, purchase our tasting glass and have a great time wandering among the winery warehouses tasting wine and lots of food treats. No need to buy lunch or dinner today!

After the open house we head up to the Gaige House in Glen Ellen to see if there is still a room available for the night. Luckily they have one Zen Suite left. Then back to CSJ for the pick-up party and we crash for the night. It’s been quite a tasty day!
