It’s almost April and there is stuff to do

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

April is not just for doing taxes. The wild iris bloom on the coastal hills. There is a great wine event the end of April when the winegrowers of Dry Creek sponsor the Passport to Dry Creekk event.

Coming up soon on-April 2nd-is the Occidental Fool’s Parade-a little spring silliness.

Sebastopol’s Apple Blossom Festivalis an event for the whole family, with food and wine pairing, a parade, art and craft expos and garden displays.

For more hands on activities check the Landpath’s list of activities.

The Russian River Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence do their famous Bingo.

For entertainment there is a free noon concert at Hopmonk Tavern on April 12 with Black Joe Lewis For those interested in brewpubs check out Stumptown Brewery in Guerneville. If you are interested in their famous festival, it’s time to book the weekend. Please feel free to call us at 1-800-776-6586 to make a reservation. Or use this form:

The Russian River Wineroad Barrel Tasting event is going on March 4-6 and March 11-13.

Like good food?

Follow Mateo Granados. He and his wonderful staff do great pop-up dinners at wineries, bakeries etc.  They are on Thursday and Friday evenings.  Want to reserve space call 707-837-0774, or if you are a guest of ours, let us know and we will make the reservations.

Just want to relax?

Come see all of the spring flowers, camelias, daffodils, probably wild iris at the coast and our Japanese tulip trees are in bloom.  By late March, wild Iris should be in bloom on the way to the coast and Spud Point Crab Company will probably have fresh crab sandwiches and great clam chowder.

Want to get some exercise?

Hike or bike between spring rain.

Want to make a difference?

Celebrate Earth Day by volunteering at the Riverkeeper Park.

 

 

Hurray, the new website is here & lots more.

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

For years our friends have put up with an old website.  Now thanks to Colin Frangos, we have a wonderful new site, easy to navigate and informative.

We think that it is more user-friendly, with the layout of the property which you can mouse over and see photos and descriptions.  Also we are going to be using the blog more so watch us for current events and well kept secrets.  A good example of this would be Mateo’s next dinner menu for his pop-up restaurant.  The dinners are on the 3rd and 4th of March, Thursday and Friday, not the 4th and 5th.

Barrel Tasting at the Wineroad wineries is the weekend of March 5th-6th and March 12th-13th.

 

We also suggest that you can visit us on Facebook and get more up to date information and reviews.
