We arrive early Friday evening having sloughed off work by Noon (urgent family crisis, cat dying, kid in jail, ectopic pregnancy, golf ball syndrome), hell just take the day off!

Saturday we visit wineries, kinky gardens, and eat a late fulsome lunch before hitting the http://www.thewinefestivals.com/calendar/events/index.php?com=detail&eID=1516
