Page Mill Winery 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Another research Friday this past week took the girls of Bryersantis to Page Mill Winery in Livermore.  Haven’t been there in a while but from what I remember, their wine was excellent.  I was lucky enough for Julia to bring home their 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon for me to try.  I’m enjoying it as I […]

Winemaker's Pourhouse, Zephyr Grill, Research Friday once again!

It had been some time since the girls of Bryersantis had an outing together.  With all of the holiday extravaganzas, starting before Thanksgiving, progressing into Christmas and then jumping into the New Year, this much needed Research Friday was definitely a welcome beginning to 2012.  I think the most exciting thing about this day is […]

Wanless Chardonnay Adding Great Flavor To Swirl's Tasting Room

Another Friday and another opportunity for my favorite kind of research.  Wine Research…We decided to head over to one of our favorite Friday lunch locations, Swirl, for a light meal and then some wine tasting in their newly added tasting room.

We enjoyed a fantastic lunch.  I had the pesto turkey sandwich on Chibatta […]

Research Friday At Wente's Tasting Room

It was wet, rainy, and cold this Research Friday, but we were not going to let that deter us.  Rachel got a better offer (if you can call the Justin Bieber movie a better offer) so it was just Julia, Jenny, and I.  It wasn’t until the last minute that we were able to decide […]

Bravo to The Vine!

Mixing things up a bit Jenny, Julia, our friend Donna, and I decided to take advantage of another great feature Livermore has to offer. The Vine Cinema!  What’s better than going to see a movie with friends?  Well, along with your standard soda pop and hot buttered popcorn on the menu you can find […]

Research Friday At Bent Creek Winery

On a recent Research Friday the ladies of Bryersantís met Carl and me for lunch at Swirl.  I don’t recall what the ladies had to eat, but I know that Carl and I both decided to order the beef stew.  It was a wise choice as it was easily one of the best stews […]

Last Research Friday of the Year

It was a little chilly yesterday, but we were all happy that the rain had decided to stay away.  The plan was to visit Fenestra for the last Research Friday before the New Year. Fenestra was a perfect spot for this outing as their property has a beautiful picnic area that is perfect for […]

The Tried and True

Not too much new research that happened this Friday, but it was still a great Friday! Sometimes you just want to revisit the tried and true like Swirl and El Sol. What a great afternoon. It’s rare on a Friday afternoon when all six of us can come together for lunch but we did […]

“Great Memories are Made With Good Wine and Friends” – McGrail Vineyards

In continuing with the tradition of “Research Fridays”, some members of Bryersantis found themselves wondering where to stop next.  This Friday took us to McGrail Vineyards.  Personally, I have only tasted one of McGrail’s Cabs a couple of years ago.  I was delighted with what I had, but wanted to try more.  Today was […]
