It had been five years since our last visit to California wine country. Once again, we chose the week of St. Patrick’s Day for our visit.
Pat and I first flew to San Francisco to meet with one of her clients and get a look at their newly-purchased and remodeled house. We had a very nice lunch sitting outside and enjoying good conversation.
We then drove to Sacramento and had dinner with some of the friends whom we had met on our recent trip to Vietnam.
We stayed in ‘Old Sacramento’ and for a little exercise, we walked along the river front. They have done a very nice job of preserving some of the old buildings.

This morning we met the folks flying up from Houston and began the wine country tour. We first drove to the Pegasus Winery in Calistoga where we met the rest of the participants on the tour for the first of nine winery visits with tastings.
Clos Pegasus was our first winery visit. We were introduced to the staff and presented with several interesting wines to taste:
