So here is what we have for now. Please note that things may change as we go.
Arriving at Hill House Inn Friday June 23. (Book at 707-937-0555 mention special 968 rate)
Saturday June 24: Bob will have a scenic route layout and yes there will be restroom stops. And I am sure Bob will find a cozy place for lunch.
Sunday June 25. Following a scenic route (it will not be hwy 128) south we enter Boonville. From here we will have several winery stops. all a bit different from your previous experiences. We also have a lunch place in our plan.
We are getting so much closer to have this finalized.
Book Hotel NOW. No cancellation penalty. We love to see many 968's...but there is a limit to how many the wineries can handle. So commit early so we can get a count.
This schedule is still on. Bob and I will physically check out routes and stops this April. Make sure you book at Hill House while available. 707-937-0555
We have a couple of options when it comes to Sunday Wine Country Lunch. Bob Frith will follow up on this. The Bewildered Pig in Philo will offer us a spectacular setting and a wonderful family lunch with a variety of meats and locally grown vegetables. We will have private parking, garden setup for drinks and appetizers. Though pricey....$ 50-70 per person plus wine or beer
We also have the "Picnic Lunch" scene at Roederer Estate. This will include a picnic lunch in a nice setting with sparkling wine and still wine.
$25 plus wine $10. (still to be confirmed)
Love to get a feed back.....what would you prefer?
