Sideways
Very cool and even better than the movie! Read it with a nice glass of #Pinot!

Just an awesome movie and a great introduction to Pinot Noir and the Santa Barbara wine scene, in general!

Au Bon Climat Santa Barbara Chardonnay 2007
Always a solid Chardonnay #wine, and one that I search for at restaurants. Great balance/acid/fruit/fullness!

I was a member of Hess for years and grew up down the mt. from them. Great, solid wines and a beauty of a winery!

Howdy, Ward, welcome to Lunch!  You are quite the social media and wine guru :)  I thought you might appreciate these reviews of the 2007 Hess Collection Cabernet and K&L Wine Merchants, as well as this list of Top 10 Napa Valley Wineries on Twitter.  And since you're in the area, I thought you'd dig my reviews of French Laundry and Ad Hoc.  Have fun checking those out and feel free to let me know if you have any questions about the site.  Looking forward to reading your reviews, Ward! :)

Hi Devora, thanks for the follow and comment! I'm actually a huge fan of both of those (speaking of which, I need to get my reviews up there ;-). I was a wine club member for many years with Hess and grew up down the mountain from them. Thanks for the offer of help, as well...I might need it, but this site is pretty intuitive. Cheers!

My pleasure, Ward!  You do need to get your reviews up of those Thomas Keller spots! ;) I'm hoping to go to Ad Hoc again soon. I really want to try their infamous every-other-Monday fried chicken.  And that's awesome that you grew up in such a gorgeous town.  One of my best friends grew up there and I always love visiting :)
