I absolutely love this little town at Christmas time -- if you haven't gone there, I highly recommend it. We met up and walked through the charming little shops for a while, then had a great German lunch at The Auslander Restaurant.
After lunch (and after having to change a flat tire!!!), we drove out to visit a couple of the local wineries.
First stop was at Rancho Ponte Winery. It was okay, but most of their wine is too dry for me -- I really only like the sweets, and the sweeter the better for me. I'm sure it was great wine for those who are real wine drinkers, but I'm more of a wine idiot, so don't gauge it by me!
Here's hoping to do more of this in 2015....I'm going to make it one of my resolutions!
