Living in Sonoma, we are surrounded by beautiful world renown vineyards and wineries, but rarely do we stop in for a visit. Yesterday, we went with a group of friends for a private winery tour & tasting at Schug winery located at the end of a mountain road surrounded by mustard flowers and bare vines just getting ready to bud. I know so little about wine, except for which tastes bitter or smooth, but we all got a good education along with the tasting. It was a fun rainy day excursion, and we followed it up with big plates of truffle-oil fries (to die for!) at EdK sitting around a cozy fireplace.
