So on Saturday we hired some bikes for the afternoon and spent it pedalling around the Russian River Valley (part of Sonoma County). Another glorious blue sky day here, not a cloud in the sky and t-shirt weather to boot (well, if you were riding a bike it was). We made it round half a dozen vineyards - they were all in very picturesque spots but there was a special wine-tasting weekend going on so it was rather crawling with day trippers. And hardly anyone else seemed to be cycling either, which we thought passing strange...
Standard vineyard goes to Stuhlmuller - pretty out-of-the-way spot, great wines, lovely people, and even some nice food! Unfortunately they don't ship wines. Bum.
