When last year's hit movie "Sideways" came out, people all over the country were introduced to the idea that California wine-making doesn't begin and end in the Napa Valley. There are, in fact, several wine regions throughout the state, including the Santa Ynez Valley where "Sideways" was filmed. Dubbed Santa Barbara Wine Country by local tourism promoters, this is an idyllic and pastoral region of small towns, ranches and, of course, a few dozen wineries that are scattered over an incredibly picturesque countryside.

So how do all the Turkey Day leftovers taste? Tired of them yet? I hope that all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. Once again I made my way up to Livermore for our traditional gathering of family and friends at my son’s home. The day after the big feast, the leftover celebrants visited several wineries to taste some great wines. For those of you that thought that Napa, Santa Inez Valley and the Paso Robles areas were about the only premier wine growing areas in California – don’t discount the Livermore Valley.
