Sonoma’s Mountain Fall
I had the opportunity to drive around the hills ands mountains surrounding Sonoma Valley today. I was picking up donated auction items for an upcoming event for our local elementary school.
There are places tucked into the hills that the average visitor to the Valley who never gets off Highway 12 misses altogether. That’s not a good thing, particularly this time of year when the vineyards are turning rich yellows, crimsons and their other fall colors before the leaves drop.
It happened that I had a camera with me today. So, to give you a better idea of what it looks like this time of year, I give you a view from the hills and valley of Sonoma

These are the ridiculously steep and terraced vineyards owned by Audlessa Vineyards and Winery in the Mayacamus Mountains. They are roughly southwest facing and really a beautiful sight. The wine is outstanding too. They make a beautiful Cab and Syrah.
