San Francisco - Wine Country

I've been pretty fortunate this year in regards to work-related trips - in March I went to San Diego and Atlanta - and last week I had a meeting in San Francisco, conveniently scheduled for Thursday/Friday which allowed us to extend the trip into a long weekend with our friends Nate and Nora in the Bay Area.

For the first two days in San Francisco I primarily did my running along the Embarcadero (Fisherman's Wharf, etc) and did an out and back across the Golden Gate Bridge during a 23 mile long run. Over the weekend I did all of my running in Golden Gate Park, which has a ton of bike paths and cool trails.

Unfortunately the weather in the city was foggy and chilly for the majority of the weekend, so we headed north to the vineyards of Sonoma for sunshine and warmth... and (lots of) wine! 

The wineries we toured were Benziger Family Winery and Gundlach Bundschu.

We had a great time and are looking forward to another trip to the Bay Area at the end of September.

These grapes were delicious to eat right off the vine

Lots of barrels, worth LOTS of money
