These historic steam trains were used to haul large nuggets of gold from the mines in the wild wild west of California in the 1800s. Today they are housed in Railtown 1897 Historic Park in Jamestown, California where I took a 6 mile 45 minute roundtrip ride through the rugged hillsides of California's Mother Lode country.  #Jamestown #California #Goldrush #steamtrain #wildwildwest #motherlode #Cameraclubfieldtrip #trainride #touristattraction #historic #museum #PetticoatJunction #49ers #3hoursfromSanFrancisco #miningtown #Goldcountry #weekendgetaway #80degreestoday #pictureperfect #50mm #SonyA7r11 #countryside #springtime #Sierrafoothills #scenic #nature #cloudsofsteam #photooftheday

It was a beautiful day in the Sierra Foothills! And its John Muir's 180th birthday! 
Here’s one our favorite quotes from him. "Another glorious Sierra day in which one seems to be dissolved and absorbed and sent pulsing onward we know not where. Life seems neither long nor short, and we take no more heed to save time or make haste than do the trees and stars. This is true freedom, a good practical sort of immortality."

A shot from this years bottling. This is our White Barbera going into bottle. We take red Barbera grapes and treat them like white wine, (not making Rosè). It won't be released till June but those attending our winemaker dinner tonight will get a treat and be the first taste it. #cheers 🍷

Extreme pleasure of the day 14-16/37: on the way up to Oregon House we stopped in Sacramento to pick up cheese (Alp Blossom and a Jurassian cheese to pair with our Jurassian wine) and to pay homage at Corti Bros and, inevitably, pick up some preserved seafood, as one does at Corti. Our host’s ten year old (a sliver of whom is visible on the left) tried—and loved—boquerones for the first time today. She also schooled us on the differences of the last few years of their home-made and home-grown olives and the delicate art of taming an energetic vineyard dog.

Extreme pleasures of the day 6-9/37: two bottles of our host’s wine and one bottle of Jurassian lightning we brought with us. All were humming with life and bore a mark of the places they came from. There’s something odd and wonderful and mind-bending and perfect about drinking a wine in the vineyard it came from. I kept smelling the wine, then the air, and then back to the wine again, trying to discern the connection between them. The Overnoy (for the uninitiated, the bottle in the middle is an epically sought-after wine geek grail) was unexpectedly (but not surprisingly) youthful in its teen-hood and one of the most special moments of the day was when our host’s 10 year old daughter tasted the Overnoy which is older than she is, and announced she didn’t care for it too much but thought that “that arbois wine” (perfect pronunciation of course) was quite similar to one of her dad’s wines, which she does like.

Extreme pleasure of today 1/37: friends and I were treated to some home-cured and home-grown olives at Clos Saron in a makeshift end-of-the-day picnic where we meditated on the events of the day, the state of wine, & the life of a vigneron as the sun set with some good things to drink and to eat.

Honey bees, such amazing little creatures. They make so many wonderful things happen in this world, fruits, veggies, flowers, honey, bees wax, bee pollen, royal jelly, bee venom, the soft hum of their wings.... so appreciative of them! #honeybee #pollen #pollinators #beehive #flowers #springblooms #busybee #beeswax #beevenomtherapy #gardening #queenbee #savethebees #savetheplanet #protectourfood #protectourearth #naturalbeauty #sweethoney #sweethoneybee #workinghard #necadacounty #sierrafoothills #california #northerncalifornia #wildflowers #noneonicotinoids

“C’est Si Bon” translates to “It’s so good!” This #wine is a blend made from varietals indigenous to the #RhôneValley in Southern France - #Grenache, #Mourvedre, #Syrah, and #Cinsault. These same grapes have proven to also grow remarkably well in the #terroir of the #SierraFoothills in #California. 
We love offering this #winebytheglass because it pairs beautifully with an array of our beef, pork, lamb, and other hearty dishes due to its medium body that is amazingly well balanced with lively fruit, soft tannins, and bright acidity. Once in the glass, this #redwine leads with intriguing aromas of strawberry, blackberry, French herbs, pomegranate, and earthy spice. With each sip, you’ll enjoy vibrant flavors of plum, raspberry, and dried currant. Subtle minerality leads to a silky, sensuous mouthfeel and genuinely long finish. A perfect marriage of depth, balance, and finesse. 
Come raise a glass of 🍷 with us soon!

New moon feels after an intense couple of weeks. I am realizing more and more how important it is to be vulnerable, reach out, and get support wherever you can find it. Setting the intention to create and seek out more spaces for connection🦋 .

This was from our “kids” craft day that eventually turned into an all ages wreath making workshop. Thankful for this growing community and to be apart of the Youth Alliance🍃

What makes our infamous El Dorado Passport panini? Applewood (from the orchard) smoked pork tenderloin, rosemary from the garden tossed in charred sweet onions, fresh sage aioli and melting Havarti on organic sourdough😋🍷

This pic was taken last month when I was looking for a good sunset. As I was waiting for the sunset I turned to the east to see this mushroom cloud as a storm was moving out of the valley. The sun reflecting off the low clouds made it look like the mushroom cloud was being heated to make it rise. #sunset #sundown #eveningsky #mushroomcloud #instaclouds #cloudmagazine #cloudscape #reflection #mysky #myview #beautifulsky #treeline #oaktrees #naturesbeauty #naturesart #natureexplorer #naturephotography #natureslandscape #afterthestorm #naturesscenery #goldcountry #visitgoldcountry #loomisca #sierrafoothills #norcalsky #norcalnature #northerncalifornia #onlyinnortherncalifornia #thenorcalcollective.

If you love Chenin, old school Zin, high acid wines, old world styling and the expression of minerality, seek them out.
