Sonoma 07

October marks the end of the official golf season, and the Champions Tour finale is the Schwab Cup Championship in Sonoma, CA. As most of you know, Beth and I really enjoy good wine so we take advantage of this event to visit some wineries and collect a few new bottles for the cellar (ok, so it's not a cellar, we have a rack and a cooler for the good bottles!). We also got to visit with my brother Don and his family which is a nice treat since we live so far apart.

When we arrived in Sonoma, we were greeted by these large chairs which I assume were built from giant redwood trees?
Nothing like and old, rusty train to distract me...
We started with a trip to Opus One vinyards. Very cool architecture.Beth adds to the elegance
On our way through Napa, we passed this house which had been decorated for Halloween
(I hope!). We had to stop and take a closer look. These people took a lot of time to do this. Very artistic... And a bit creepy! I'm guessing they need lots of candy.
