Day - 3   SAN FRANCISCO, SONOMA, LAKE TAHOE
14 - June - 2015
Globus:
This morning, cross the Golden Gate Bridge and head to California's wine country, where you'll enjoy a guided tour of the wine caves and a tasting at the GLORIA FERRER CAVES & VINEYARD, makers of award-winning sparkling wines. Continue to beautiful Lake Tahoe for a 2-night stay. (B)
Today we headed off into the country and really started our tour.  First stop is Vista Point just the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge and as what seems to be the usual thing, the bridge is in a light mist, but a delight to see anyway.  Next was the vinery of Gloria Ferrer where unfortunately they only have red wines - Red's are not to my liking so I at least stayed sober.  The vinery tour was quite enjoyable even so.  Lunch stop was at Sonoma which had a mass BBQ going on - there were hundreds of chickens roasting on multilevel spits.  Our afternoon stop was at Old Sacramento before rolling into Lake Tahoe just before dinner.  We took a walk along the lake waterfront, which is a private beach, but free at certain hours of the day, to see a memorable sunset across the lake.  As the sunset faded we crossed into a local private golf course and out to the highway and back to our hotel.
