Scenes from California's Real Wine Country

These shots were taken by my Mother-in-law Peggy, who really captured the true essence of an authentic vineyard. If you're ever lucky enough to tour California's wine regions, be sure to get off the beaten paths and experience the look, smell and feel of real, family-run wineries. Sure, you may not get a free refrigerator magnet, like at those giant, soulless, corporate-owned wine factories, but you will be compensated with something even more attractive.

By the way, I'll be back tomorrow with a brand new video recipe! Enjoy!

Below you'll see: Bill Frick, wine maker extraordinaire;
the beautiful vineyards and winery; Bill's son Michael's "seashell car"; Bill's home overlooking the vineyards; the world's second most famous leaning tower; and the last shot is the tasting room where we do all the food. (click to enlarge)
