Wine Country – Sonoma, Calif.

Went to Sonoma, CA for a short wine tasting trip with colleague from Malaysia. Thank god the weather is wonderful, and Sonoma is such a peaceful town with lots of history and wonderful buildings and winery. Depart from Folsom after breakfast at IHOP with “All You Can Eat” pancakes set. LOL

We drove straight to the town center to get tour information and perhaps some good deals on wine tasting.

The first winery we went was the Bartholomew Park Winery, and too bad, we were too early. We took the chance to walk around the park and the scenery is refreshing with the mustards, oranges and out-growth.

The next winery is Buena Vista, which is exactly next to the Bartholomew. It’s the first commercial winery and it has a deep history and the founder, Agoston Haraszthy.

Before lunch, we drove up the valley to Ledson, a nice winery with a castle. :D

We heard that the mustard produced here are fantastic, but we’re out of luck that it’s packed and stored due to a renovation was on-going in the market. Heading back to the town for a lunch, and stopped by the Mission Chapel, which was the final destination of the missionary effort from the South.
