Road Trip to San Francisco, CA: Vineyards and local inspiration - Day 3

It was our last full day in the Bay Area and Sunday Brunch at the Bay Grille was the perfect way to start off the morning. I decided on a Denver Omelet with sausage, croissant, and blueberry blintz. I love blintzes, especially with blueberries, one of my weaknesses! They also had a great selection of muffins from blueberry to oat bran to an almost coffee cake like muffin with a streusel on topping. The aroma alone was divine! Fresh fruit, yogurt, along with cereal rounded out a delectable array of selections.

In the late morning, we drove across the Bay Bridge to AT&T Park to meet our tour bus to experience the V. Sattui Winery  in St. Helena, CA, part of the Napa Valley Wine Country. The two-hour luxury coach ride to and from was so relaxing. On the way there, I was able to capture scenic shots of seemingly endless vineyards stretching across the hills. I can see why thousands upon thousands visit Napa Valley. It’s definitely not just for the wine but being able to awaken your other senses as well. I missed a great photo op of the largest Jack Rabbit I had ever seen. At first I thought I was looking at a dog, until it hopped across the field with those unmistakable rabbit ears held high.
