I just got back from California with some of the Grapevine sales team. What a trip!
We started out by heading to Point Reyes with Rich Marino from Cartlidge & Browne for some Cowgirl Creamery Red Hawk Cheese and Point Reyes small oysters . I didn't think the trip could get any better but day after day it was amazing. We had some fantastic visits at Pellegrini, Schug, and Truchard who treated us to lunch. We took a tour of all the Deloach family's properties and got to ride in the fire truck at Hook & Ladder winery.
There are some winery visits I can't quite comment on at the moment. To top the trip off was the Slanted Door in SFO and a Giants game. We finished with dinner at Sara Floyd's, owner of Luli, house joined by the Pisoni family among others. Jeff Pisoni makes the wine for Sara from his family's vineyards in Saint Lucia Highlands. Amazing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for under $25.
