    Next day played 9 holes of golf at the Alisal River course, ate at the Solvang Restaurant, then checked out Kalyra, the Santa Ines Mission and Gainey before heading north up Foxen Canyon Road.
    It got too late to make it to Foxen, but coming south, hit Zaca Mesa, Fess Parker and Firestone before eating at the Los Olivos Cafe and Wine Merchant.
    Next day ate at Split Pea Andersons before heading back home.
    Very Cool. I'm actually a member of Lafond and Zaca Mesa. I've been to Sandford as well... It's pretty cool that we have a wine region so close to us. A lot of people don't realize how many wineries they have just beyond their doorstep. Hopefully you had a great time. If so, you should go back in the Spring after the rains. The hills are as green as can be and it's just amazing. We like to go up a few times a year at least.

    Yea we used to live on Foxen Canyon Road! Great area that's for sure.

    Cabernet Sauvignon with steak, although there's nothing wrong with Merlot, thanks Miles.

    White Reisling or Chardonnay are a nice mix with lighter meats.

    It's been a while but Fetzer and Stag's Leap are decent tasting and priced wines.
    Byron, Sanford, Firestone, and Zaca Mesa have never done me wrong either.

    Ive seen Stags Leap approach 50 a bottle for 2004s...I dunno. It's good, but not that good, to me anyway, and I am definitely not an expert. I just go by taste and feel.

    Yeah another vote for Firestone here.

    Lately Ive been drinking a 5 dollar bottle of malbech from TJ's.

    I'm convinced after numerous experiments that Fetzer Valley Oaks Gewürztraminer is THEE best wine on the planet with Thai take-out. Especially the Tom-yum soup. Fan****ingtastic!!!!

    Definitely a good choice.

    Besides BevMo, the Winehouse has a great selection of really good wines at very reasonable prices. Byron is one of my personal favorites of Pinot Noir. Just bought the 2006 Le Cadeau, a vinyard from Oregon. They have great pinots up in Oregon
