Some of the pics from our drive from San Francisco up to Mendocino through wine country. We actually camped for free for a night at a casino next door to a winery, which was very convenient. 😜 More on that to follow!

I tend to find a bunch of these #decievers or #laccaria in Napa, usually it is the purplish Western Ameythyst but there can also be wide phenotypic variation. They are white spored mycorrhizal mushrooms that are technically edible (but not choice). I thought these were Laccaria laccata at first but after more reading I'm not sure. I am just blown away by the curled caps and wrinkly invaginated gills on this bouquet is mushrooms. Found on a hike up in Angwin/Las Posadas. Happy Saturday y'all!

Worked #napavalley like a #pro for the last 2 days scouting for the #fall #cycling camp @breezysaycheezy & #rofaendurance will be hosting. Although the #rain kept me from riding this time, I’m confident there is enough #wine & #cycling in #napavalley & #sonomacounty to keep us #hydrated & #fit 
Not to mention #wine expert @crwines blew my mind w/ all his knowledge! Looking forward to having him involved. Stay tuned, next week @breezysaycheezy will be in #sonoma for more hard work including #tasting & #riding #bikes to ensure the most #fabulous #camp you can imagine. #coaching #training #cycling #endurance 🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️🍷🍷🍷🚵‍♀️🚵‍♀️🚵‍♀️🍇🍇

Bitch, I’m in ~*~wine country~*~

Bitch, I’m in ~*~wine country~*~

Wineries don’t get more rock n’ roll than this. Lede Family Wineries, encompassing Cliff Lede Vineyards (located in Napa’s Stags Leap District) and FEL Wines (based in Anderson Valley), was launched and is guided to this day by noted classic rock and Bordeaux enthusiast Cliff Lede. 🍷
🍷
The 60-acre estate and winery in Stags Leap focuses on producing wines from the estate. Lede hired viticulturalist extraordinaire David Abreu in 2002 to replant the vineyards, and he couldn’t resist naming each block after favorite rock songs and albums (“My Generation, “Dark Side of the Moon.”) 🍷
🍷
In 2005, he built out a 25,000 square foot state of the art gravity flow winery and cave system in the hillside overlooking the vineyards. Throughout the property, museum worth contemporary sculptures by Jim Dine (Twin Venusus From Thunder, Twin Hearts) blossom from the landscape, and classic rock (The Stones, the Who, the Dead) provides a backbeat. There are also rotating art exhibits and rock memorabilia; when I was there last week, a stunning Grace Slick show was up, along with work from John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s collection. 🍷
🍷
But what about the wine? In a word, delicious. The soil at the estate is primarily gravelly-loam and the vines planted are the Napa hit list we all know and love: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec. My favorite Cliff Lede creation is the 2015 Moon Fantasy ($110). It embodies the artistry, fun and unique terroir found there. Moon Fantasy is a blend of the Pink Floyd “Dark Side of the Moon” block and Traffic’s “Dear Mr. Fantasy.” It’s primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (88%), with the “Dear Mr. Fantasy” block planted in volcanic soil contributing structure, concentration and power, and the “Dark Side” block lending black fruit, aromas of cassis, lushness. Blackberry, orange liqueur, roasted tobacco. 🍷

Highway 128 is closed by the Dam. The plus side is the lake is almost full. Road should be reopening next week, we will keep you posted. To get to the lake you must take highway 121 from Cordelia or 121 from Napa. Looks like the glory hole is getting close, glory hole is definitely going to flow in 2019. #gloryhole #gloryholelakeberryessa #gloryholeberryessa #lakeberryessa #wakeboarding #wakesurfing #napavalley #napacrush #lakeberryessaboatrentals #boatrentalslakeberryessa #boatrentals #jetskirentals #kayakrentals #paddleboarding #wakeboarding #gloryhole
