Passport to Dry Creek 2012 #dcvpassport

It is hear again...and each year we seem to extend it a little more. This year we arrived on Thursday. That is to give ourselves a little time to acclimate from the travel. And it was a good thing because I was ready to crash at 7:30pm last night.

There are 13 of us attending this year. Seven from Dayton OH, 1 from Phoenix AZ (although originally from Dayton), 1 from LA (who claims to hate Dayton),2 from Berkeley CA, and 2 from Petaluma CA. We have 4 Passport virgins. It is going to be an interesting weekend.

Six of us arrived at SFO and after gathering our rental tank...I mean van... we headed North. First stop was Della Fattoria Cafe in Petaluma. Some of the most amazing bread ever.

After checking in to or hotel, we waled to Healdsburg. It is truly about a six block walk...unfortunately, there are not sidewalks the entire trip. But it is a closer walk than last year.

First stop Stephen & Walker. This winery was on my list of wineries to visit but it didn't make the cut in voting by the group. All of the wines were excellent but I'm in love with their Sauvignon Blanc. Someone (not me) joined the wine club.

Next, was dinner at Bear Republic. After a sampler of 6 beers, John and I shared a sausage plate that was fabulous. You also need to have their Garlic Fries.
