We're game to do Valentines weekend at DeRose if there's interest. If you remember/went last year, unfortunately I can't find the old posting, but maybe someone else can. DeRose Winery is located near Hollister, CA. This will be our third year. DeRose has a large parking lot they let us use--totally dry camping--we bring chairs, tables, fire pit, and anything else we need--no hookups or water available. Generally, it's also been dry weather, but that's not guaranteed! There are several other wineries located in the area. Pat DeRose is a wonderful host and contributes wine and grape vines (for our campfire). We once again have a leg of lamb to contribute. There's room for about 12 trailers--I think that's what we had last year. Even non-drinkers are welcome and had a good time last year.

Do folks contact you Nancy if they're interested in more info?

Count us in

Last year we arrived the day before and stayed at the fairgrounds over on Hwy 25. You need to send a check for your reservations to them.

We had 5 Casitas there.


Here is a link to http://www.derosewine.com

and the fair grounds over on Hyw 25 just south of Tres Pinos for early commers.

The dates are Sat & Sun Feb 11 and 12. See Glen's posting for Friday and Monday camping nearby (thanks Glen for the pix!) Yes, send me an email or message here and I'll begin to put up more info. So far, it looks like Mike Kelley and his wife (sorry, I forgot her name), Glen & Rita, Mike & Lori (potentially) and us.

Great! I heard back from Al DeRose--he says "come on down"! I'll bring the leg of lamb and the fire pit. Can we get some volunteers for other Saturday night dinner? We'll need dessert, salad, bread, a rice/potato dish, and loads of appetizers! It would also be fun to share Sunday brunch. We should also have rain protection--just in case!

I stopped by the Fairgrounds this morning and made my reservation ($12) for Friday night.

We need to be in the fairgrounds before 5 pm as they lock the gate. Not to worry I think we can get a key again.

Dinner will be at the Veranda Bakery Cafe just a mile up the road in Tras Pinios.

I'd like to bring a cheese tray for the wine tasting and afterwards, if that's OK. Buying cheese is my second greatest camping pleasure after eating it!

Whether we get the key is critical to whether Tao and I stay somewhere on the way up rather than the Fairgrounds. We'll never make it by 5 p.m. In fact, last year the folk at the bakery were nice enough to feed us while they were cleaning the place up after closing!

If our group does get the key, we'll need the phone number of the person who has it.

Oh rats, we can’t come. We have a family conflict (wedding) that trumps this trip, sorry. Hopefully we can meet up with y’all soon.

Something came up and I got tickets to Chicago. We are going to have to skip this year at DeRose. I was waiting all year for this trip.
MK and Josefina

We sure will miss Mike & Josefina, and Mike & Lori! So, it looks like:
Nancy & Ollie
Glen & Rita
Bonnie & Tao
Possibly Shirley & Bob
Anybody else?

I have been trying to clear that weekend, still working on it. Would love to join in the fun.

Would a last minute decision be a problem?

Roy

Not at all, Roy--we'd be happy to have you up until we've all had too much Zin to notice! For anyone who hasn't gone before, we'll be in the parking lot across the street (Cienega ?Road) from the actual tasting room. If you get there before any of us show up, just pull along side the road and taste some wine--we'll be along shortly--by noon or earlier. Bring something chocolate and we'll let you in!!
