Wine Country
« on: August 07, 2009, 08:43:29 pm »
The wife and I spent two days in Sonoma, the heart of Northern California's wine country.  Our friend has been trying to get us to see his new house for a few years.  Its located in a scenic area where the visibility is 70 miles.  You can see the bay bridge from there.  Here's a 36mb 360 degree video.



I'll add a few photos of the trip later.

I have many old friends there from living and doing business there for 14 years. I invited about 20 to the plaza for Farmers Market night.  It was around this Plaza that Kit Carson and 34 riders took possession of California from Colonel Vallejo about 165 years ago and it became part of the United States.

Another friend, left is quite a famous sculpture and has his own foundry in Sonoma.
