Join us this weekend at A Taste of the Foothills Wine, Food, and Art event is a sensory experience not to be missed! Over a dozen local wineries, restauranteurs, artists and artisans have gathered at the beautifully restored courtyard at the Smith Flat House to offer  a "taste" of their talents. Live music by Joaquin Fioresi and plenty of fare a great value at $25 advance ticket price. This is a benefit for our girls' school, Cedar Springs Waldorf School and 100% of the proceeds go to the school. Buy your tickets online at TasteoftheFoothills or $30 at the door. I really hope to see you there!


We've posted some of the highlights of the 2012 Wine Competition results and are really proud to share the Double Gold, Best Tempranillo we received on our 2008 "Five Fingers" Tempranillo from the San Francisco International Wine Competition! Be sure to stock your cellar this one, it's been going quick! We still have memberships available in our Wine Bum Society be sure to check that out.


On Wednesday evenings we're offering Hatha Flow Yoga by Faye Levine. Come join us 5:30-6:45PM on Wednesdays as we stretch and pose under the blue sky and singing birds. $10 per class contact Faye for more info.


The Silver Fork Adobe Earth Oven is nearing completion and has been fun to fire up on Friday evenings for family dinner. I'll keep you posted about an inaugral event, once it's finished.
