Sunday night Kathy and I took our dad wine tasting in Livermore. He loves to wine taste and Livermore is the closest wine growing region to San Leandro.

In all we had a great time. We made it to four wineries, apparently all I can take before getting too tipsy. Concannon Vineyards, […]

Sunday afternoon we took my father wine tasting in the Russian River region. We’d previously taken him to Napa and Sonoma and wanted to go somewhere new. We started late so we only hit four wineries, but it was a very pleasant (if long) trip. The region is very pretty, the wineries are much less […]
