We pulled up in our retro Airstream RV and instantly knew we’d made the right decision to spend the weekend camping here. The owners and folks that manage the estate are lovely people who made sure we we’re settled in and acclimated before giving us the run of the place. We fell in love immediately!
The small private vineyard is beautiful and the lush landscape was just what we were looking for on our camping adventure. As we sat under the covered patio, having dinner that our Dad cooked in the well appointed outdoor kitchen, Lola and I looked up to see the most amazing of California sunsets, glowing with reds, oranges, purple and blue hues down at the end of the valley. What a way to end a great day!
We woke up early in the morning to a little bit of fog or marine layer that hung above the palm trees and horse paddock, just as the sun was peaking over the ridge that borders the property to the south. Lola and I took a walk before breakfast to get our day off to a healthy start. The fog burned off quickly as we eased into our first full day here. The winery and grounds have been created to have a park like feel that is both beautiful and naturalistic, imbuing the property with a kind of tranquility and peacefulness.
We really enjoyed playing and carousing with the owners friendly blond labradors, Diego, Reese and Gunner, who run around the property all day. And that night, Mom and Dad had s’mores and shared a bottle of wine by the huge fire pit as we all looked up at a sky completely filled with stars. We regret having to ever leave such a place, but by the time we got home on Sunday afternoon, we were all a bunch of very happy (hip) campers ready for the week ahead.
If we get our way, we’ll be back camping here again and again. What a terrific experience!
