The Fun Never Stops in San Francisco

by Ashley on August 22, 2013

Hi there! Happy Thursday! I hope you enjoyed the past few days posts: the beauty secret that I swear by and my first post as a member of The Recipe Redux! Today I want to share with you a few of my favorite pictures from this week in San Francisco!

This trip was more of a get a taste of everything type trip. I wanted to see a little bit of everything rather than a lot of one thing. And we sure have done that!

Starting in Sonoma, we visited some pretty amazing wineries. Our first stop was Benziger Winery, a biodynamic and organic vineyard (what do ya know! ;-)).

We took a tour through the vineyard, visited the fermentation facility and crush pad, and then went into the barrel cave. We ended in the tasting room where we picked up a delicious bottle of Benziger Merlot to save and savor on our 5th year wedding anniversary approaching us rather quickly!

After stopping in a few other vineyards, we finished at one at our favorite spot of the day, VJB Vineyards and Cellars. VJB is an Italian vineyard with a “California approach.”

We started with a prosecco straight from Italy first and then tasted about twelve different wines. We enjoyed VJB so much because of the friendly staff behind the tasting bar, as well as the option to enjoy a delicious veggie pizza while we sipped and tried new wines!

Tuesday we ventured over to Muir Woods to view the BEAUTIFUL Redwoods.

We ended up taking the long route and found ourselves alone on the “3,500+ people per day” hike. It ended up taking us about four hours to hike through the beautiful trails but the views were out of this world amazing.

We picked up and packed lunch and snacks so there was no lack of energy for our hike!

We then headed back into the city to view “the worlds curviest street” on Lombard Street and then ventured over to the Painted Ladies to see just where the opening credits of  Full House were shot.

We have been in Lake Tahoe for the past couple of days but I will save those shots and the weekend plans for later!

I hope you are having an awesome week thus far. Only one more day ’til Friday! Have a great afternoon!

Good health!
