We left San Francisco in the late afternoon on 6th July heading north over the Golden Gate bridge towards Napa and Sonoma valleys. After a night's sleep in Petaluma we drove to Sonoma and found a lovely little vineyard to do some wine tasting. Only two problems with this plan: 1. it was 10am and 2. we're on a road trip and needed to get to Santa …
