    Thanks for a really pleasant experience! The tour of the plantings was special. I'll work on identifying granite as opposed to iron in the character of the wines.
    I didn't know the group had arrived until picture taking time. I'll look for the name tags and get one next time.

    Hi Everyone..Looks like everyone had a great time and the day worked out well. I wish I could have been there with you all to partake in some great wine, music and hospitality by Matt and the Big Basin Winery ...... Many thanks to Rick and Stacey for co-hosting the event and helping each and everyone there come together..................... Just one note: I would ask - as part of this group - and esp as a regular in this group - that you wear name tags when requested. They are not meant to help you nor is is about you ! They are meant to provide our guests attending for the first time a non-threatening way to find people in our group and give them an opening into conversation with us. Selfless acts like these is what makes us a great group ! Thanks for your cooperation in this matter going forward !
