For Father’s Day, my husband thought it would be nice to take a leisurely back-roads drive to Ridge Vineyards in Cupertino via Pierce Road in Saratoga and then do a little wine tasting.  It was nice to get away from major roads and freeways, and we very much enjoyed the drive – but much more so the destination!

Every time we visit Ridge, it seems to be just a little bit nicer than when we’d last seen it.  The grounds have gone from rustic to sophisticated and there are many more places to enjoy a little wine and picnic now as compared to ten or twenty years ago. (I think I first joined Jim there more than 30 years ago.)  Here are a few photos of our trek there today.    It’s always a pleasant place to visit, and often the views are spectacular.
