Recently, I visited Santa Rosa at the annual wine blogger’s conference for my first wine conference.  I don’t know much about wines, so I’m learning how to spell and correctly pronounce Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. I hope to describe wines as fruity, dry, buttery and robust. The days were full of learning and tasting many wines from every price range up to $130 a bottle.

As you know, Santa Rosa suffered much from the devasating fires and the area is determined to make a come back. Charles Schultz had a local influence with his studio and museum and around town are many of his characters. How can you not smile seeing these big personalities on a morning walk. Who is your favorite character?
