Post by Tracy Logan

Here are my recommendations for a fun-filled two days/two nights in Geyserville:

Day One

Arrive in Geyserville and relax around the pool at Hope-Merrill House, your lodging. Walk to Diavola for dinner, a local favorite with great pizza, fresh salads and panini to tempt every palate- great wine list, too-

rustic, comfy décor. After sleeping peacefully in this Victorian mansion, start your day with their inspiring, complete breakfast.

Head out viagra tablets for sale the door and south on Geyserville Avenue- first stop is Route 128 for tasting in one of the original Henry Ford Auto supply shops. Great wine and fun are found here along with some great historical photos. Then trek to Mercury Wines, for as they say, “tiny lots of everything, at prices you can afford”- winemaker Brad is truly a mad scientist and quite the host in this white-on-white, open, modern tasting room.

Now it’s time for lunch a couple blocks north at Hoffman House, healthy and delicious, a favorite with locals and visitors alike. After lunch wander back south to Locals where you can taste flights of wine. This is such a treat to sample wines side by side! Don’t forget to visit Meeker, in the old BofA Bank Vault and, then check out W2 Williamson Wines, where the wines are featured in a beautiful, cool modern tasting room.

Walk back up to Hope-Merrill for more pool time and rest- on the way back, check out the incredible potpourri of items that are available in the historic Bosworth Hardware Store.

Dinner tonight is within walking distance of your lodging, too- favorite, Catelli’s.

Day Two

Next morning, stroll over to Alexander Valley Bikes and rent some wheels- head north to Geyser Peak and then south to check out the tasting menu at Trione, Clos du Bois and Trentadue.

Then it’s a short bike over to RUSTIC, Francis’ Favorites, the new restaurant at Francis Ford Coppola’s Winery for lunch. Food, service and views (sit on the terrace) are all proving to be a winning combination! Great wine list available here. You can even stroll through the winery for a bit of Hollywood glamor with the Coppola Oscars, costume and prop displays- including the Tucker automobile- and a great gift store. The family pool with rent-able individual pool “Cabines” are also a great way to pass some time.

 

Here’s looking at you, kids.
