Wine country.  That’s what I often say when someone asks me where I live.  There are so many vineyards and wineries around here, dotted within the valleys and hillsides north of San Francisco.  I used to buy wine only from Sonoma county, the county I live in.  But now, since I went to a wedding in Napa county and went back to explore the area, I do, on occasion, purchase something from Napa.  Actually, I don’t even drink that much wine.  It’s the beauty of the area that I really like.  These vineyards are up on the hillside above St. Helena.

I don’t drink a heck-of-a-lot-of wine, but I do enjoy a good glass of red now and again.  And living in California’s “wine region” it’s pretty easy to find a good bottle.  Recently I went up over the hill into St. Helena in the Napa Valley.  Inside the old Christian Brothers building which is now the Culinary Institute of America is this beautiful cellar and old oak barrel.  Sure would be fun to have a cellar like that!
