  3. pride mountain winery has what you are looking for in a tasting experience (scenery, friendly, good wine, picnic areas, non touristy) yes bouchon is good try terra in st helena as an alternative or martini house stop by model bakery for a quick and inexpensive lunch (disclaimer: i work there) you can drop by at around midnight if you want to see the ovens have fun. the bay area is a wonderful place to experience.

  12. i've found that the better quality wines seem to endure a couple 24 hour periods, perhaps a testamony to the tannins' quality rather than quantity. the fruit seems to enjoy a shorter "peak window." an expert may be able to explain better...
  13. you should try "emailing" chef and "asking."
  14. maybe if he used great bread he would have gotten the 4 stars?
