Ghirardelli Square Wine Festival - Sights and Sounds



The Ghirardelli Square Annual Wine Festival "Uncorked" was in full swing when we arrived. There were wine tasting booths along Beach Street from Larkin to Polk and above throughout the square plaza. Cooking demonstrations from local restaurants were at hand displaying their epicurean expertise. Live entertainment could be found along Beach Street and the plaza. I was thrilled to see Pamela Rose performing. She is a San Francisco favorite and wonderful jazz singer. I was also blissfully pleased to see some of my favorite wineries including the Martin Ray wineries of Santa Rosa. Cellar 360 as shown above is that type of venue where you just want to grab some wine and cheese and hang out on the plaza all day long. I love it there - any job openings? Seriously though it is the place for wine on the square. Wattle Creek also has some tasty delights waiting for you. We spent many hours at this festival and loved every moment. Thanks to Lindsay Maxon for this local favorite each year. Below are some sights and sounds you may enjoy.

It must be great fun. I wish we had more things like that here. There is an old winery just down the road from me. It's actually a historical monument now. It was a museum for awhile, but now it's closed.

There's a fair happening where I live next weekend. I'm wondering if I should take my camera with me... :-)

That is fun. Your first picture with a girl having some wine while she was walking looks so relaxing.
