    As mentioned this past Thursday, we spent the better part of Saturday at Cakebread Cellars in Rutherford attending the winery’s Holiday cookie cooking class (say that three times fast).

    Last Friday, when many were out looking for amazing deals on Black Friday, we made our way up to Yountville for the kick-off of the annual Festival of Lights. Having not been in years past, we were not quite sure what to expect. We did know there would be plenty of food, wine and other festivities–and we were certainly not disappointed.
