    If coming from the S.Rosa area down 101; exit at hwy 116 to lakeville rd. & the 116 left turnoff from lakeville.(A bit confusing) It winds uphill & ends at a T. Turn right & get on hwy 121 left at blinking stop lite. (Corner of arnold dr.(116) & 121 as it winds towards DiRosa. **Watch for the Orange gate on your left just before you get to Domaine carnerous winery on hill on your right.

    Google map this . You can get lost.

    Sorry everyone ; I have been in the sunny & warm midwest after our Hawaii adventure trip. I had to go there as a death in family put a wrench in plans, etc.
    NOTE: If you go to : www.meetup.com/backroadswineandnatureadventures , the Itinerary is posted on this my main site.

    This is a long day; We meet in the DiRosa lot at 9:30 am. Wwe shuttle from here to Quarry Hill Asian ghardens. We picnic after there with wine. (You bring a lunch & I'll have 7 varietals (wine) w/glasses.
    We leave there at 12:30 sharp for our 1:00 pm. Tram ride from the Gatehouse gallery (DiRosa) up to the main grounds. ** This place has the largest collection of Art & pseudo art & a lot of weird stuff in Ca. Like: A smoke ring machine. Flying angels, cars hanging from trees, a beautiful palm island lake, kaliedeascope wall, & so much more.
    We leave here at 3;00 pm to Cornerstone Pl. It's indoors & mostly outdoors on the exhibit grounds. Then on to 2-3 special nearby wineries for wine tasting & more.

    I'm interested...are there more details? Where? How much? Etc...

    Have been to Cornerstone when opened and am excited to see again when imagining much has developed. Don't want Tom to lose site privileges....DiRosa is $5 or $12-15 for guided tour; Quarry Hill is $15 or $5 for members (good idea); and Cornerstone is free or $10 for Zipper (a guidebook) I'd like to know if anyone wants to carpool? I'd like to meet in Rohnert Park if someone wants to ride with me. Haven't mapquested these locations yet to see how the route would go for scheduling. Mapquest suggests this itinerary (from RP) 1) Quarryhill, Glen Ellen; 2) DiRosa, Napa; and 3) CornerStone Sonoma.

    Hi Tom,
    Many people have asked what the cost is for this event. Please post the cost if you wish to have it remain on our site. Also, I want to remind members that this is a suggested event and I have nothing to do with it.
    Thanks, Andy
