Alright Alright Alrighttt. Grapes & Grub coming back!

We need to get another one coming and having a nice fall tasting convoy would be great! I think another some different Sonoma county wineries would be great with Russian River again. Lets put this out as a feeler and try to set a date. I think the 25th would be cool. I will have to take off work but be doable for me.

Whats everyone thinking.. havent checked out the rest of the threads but if it overlaps lets plan something so majellin and petey can join in this time! :rock: and looking at the smileys.. we need a wine one. :beer:?

This is a bit too far for the next few months as I'm coaching soccer on weekends. The wife and I are definitely winos so I'll keep an out for 2015 opportunities.

I also still want to put something together for a Central Coast version. 🍷👍

Something like that. 😉 Gone there every May for last 15+ yrs. Proposed to my wife in Paso. Family issue meant we couldn't go this year. Getting back means another life hurdle overcome. I'm looking forward to going with wife. 👍

Love coaching, but does mean 3 months+ of weekends off limits. Also hard to find folks wanting to wheel on Sundays. Wasn't a big deal, till the jeep grew up recently. Lol.

You guys are killing me…I get in my jeep every day and can't figure out how I haven't cleaned it :doh: It's a mess, I am typically very picky and clean right after each trip…too busy these days, I will get it done before Sat :thumb:
Where are you guys planning on staying sat night? We talked about going to Castello di Amorosa. There is a tour where you get a private tasting room and more wines or we can just go taste :clap2: Stirling is also fun. Rombauer is good we are members and can get free tastings of our group. Darioush is also a beautiful winery. Andrew also mentioned some places :crazyeyes: THoughts? :grouphug:

Here is the link: https://www.livingsocial.com/deals/1236658-wine-tasting-card-for-two?pos=0

I'm working on putting a list together and then mapping it out so we can have somewhat of a plan.

Rombauer
Russian River

Rombauer
Russian River
Baletto

So here is a link to the list of wineries where we would receive free tastings and some even discounts on wine purchases: http://sipcalifornia.com/product/2014-sonoma-wine-tasting-card/

I sort of just put together a list of some of the top rated wineries on the SIP list, along with the few that people have mentioned wanting to go to (Russian River and Balletto are on the SIP list so that's a PLUS), and added a few in the area near those wineries to give some options. I would also love to go to Rombauer but it seems pretty far. That being said I'm just along for the wine, so everyone else can decide lol. Also, this is just to get an idea of the layout and our plentiful options.

106348

Basically, the 123 4th street winery is a tasting room called Lost Canyon in Santa Rosa I added it since it's in the middle of everything, and it's on the SIP card. Also, Balletto and three other wineries are right there and are also on the SIP card. Hudson street has five wineries right there that are all on the SIP card. Foppiano is also on the SIP card plus it has 10% off fully priced wine. I believe the only one on the map I made that isn't on the SIP card is Rombauer. There are sooo many in the area that we could basically choose a town and search nearby with the list that SIP provides. I just did this to sort of map out the area and the three staples everyone wanted ;)

The company is based in California so I'm hoping so, fingers crossed. However, I'm going to print out all of my receipts and confirmations so that if it doesn't at least I'll have that. I'm sure they will accept that. They are normally pretty nice and I've used this card before, so I'm hoping just having the print out will be enough in the worst case scenario.

Just spoke to Dana at Sip California, the owner, there was an issue with mine since my Living Social account had my maiden name and my Sip account had my married name. Anyhow, she's going to overnight it and worse case scenario there is a winery in Sonoma that I can pick it up at. However, I'm pretty sure she's going to over night it for like $5 :clap2:

So she ended up mailing it regular usps they assured her it would make it to me. And if you buy it and it doesn't make it to you you could still pick it up at their winery in sonoma
She told me i could do that if for some reason it didnt come in time. ..she's really nice.

We haven't solidified a starting point but i think starting at Rombauer makes the most sense. On top of that we'd love to meet you :-) what do you guys think? ? Panda and Kitty?? Jason and Jenn? ?? RSD and JKshotty??? Start at Rombauer and meet a fellow wayalifer??

I would totally understand if you guys dont make it there first because according to your map it does seem like a bit of a trek if most of your tastings are in Sonoma. A quick get away to checked out some Jeeps and meet you folks sounds like a nice way to spend the morning.
Well...then going to some winery's and having a few glasses of wine would be more fun of course but quickies are good too. LoL

We haven't solidified a starting point but i think starting at Rombauer makes the most sense. On top of that we'd love to meet you :-) what do you guys think? ? Panda and Kitty?? Jason and Jenn? ?? RSD and JKshotty??? Start at Rombauer and meet a fellow wayalifer??

i like it. never leave one behind! haha. lets meet there first thing when they open. and can end at baletto again with a picnic??

there is a random one lane road that leads from st helena. where rombaur is at. nothing crazy but has some cool views i think

10-23-2014, 04:29 AM
Soooo...what's everyone's general consensus here??? If we skip Rombauer and do baletto and RR first then we can choose more off the sip card after we finish with those two. Hudson st. Near those two has like 5 on the sip card. Upsideup would you want to meet us for a tasting at Russian River or Baletto early? I know you cant stay the whole day, but maybe one winery? Just wanted to through this out there since Rombauer is kinda far from the other wineries. :)


Edit: it may not have been hudson st
Nearby but i know there are plenty on the sip card that are in that area.

there are like a dozen plus wineries around rr and baletto. so much, and wine guerilla is another place we are members at and have good zins and blends. and jigar which is a new tasting room on the same block of wine guerilla which is all about 5 mins from rr. not to keep with the ones we did last time but ya know our favs lol

I don't think I would make the trip over to RR just because I would probably be leaving the wife and kids at home and I wife only has weekends off. So taking up to much time from the day might not sit well with her if you know what I mean. And since she is still breast feeding she wouldn't be to into the winery idea for now. That's why I was just thinking of something quick.
But as I said...I totally understand if you guys decide to just run Sonoma Valley. I will keep looking to see what you guys decide. Either way it's going to be a fun day for you guys and wish I could make the whole thing.

Well if they want to solidify a time then lets make RR the first stop and our meeting point. What does everyone think? 11:15 am meet at RR then from there go to Bolletto then from there choose some from the SIP card?

So is the plan solidified to meet at 11:15am at Russian River? Are they expecting us at that time?

Edit: So J & J need to hit Meadowcraft first thing at 11am to get the Sonoma card (they have the Napa card). So can we alter the plans and hit Meadowcraft at 11:15 then after that go to Russian River and go from there? That way J & J can get their card and meet us all. The issue being its a 30+ mile difference between Meadowcraft and RR so they can't be at MC at 11 and then RR at 11:15. What does everyone think about doing that? MC 11:15 then RR afterwards and go from there?

Okay new plan!!! Thanks for that info RSD!!

Spoke to Sarah, there is a large group that has the first half of the day, so we really wouldn't have wanted to be there anyhow at that time (there is a party of 30 and outside will be closed due to the rain). So, the new plan is to start at Meadowcraft at 11:15, taste there, get J & J's card and then from there we'll drive to Balleto. We'll taste there, then head to Russian River. The large party has the room until approx. 2:30-2:45. So our goal will be to be there around that time. Then from there we can go wherever the wine is flowing....which is in many places so....

How's that all sound?
