We stayed overnight in the winemaker's suite. It was gorgeous with beautiful furniture and an outstanding view of the vineyard and the mountains. The bed was very comfortable and I would have loved to have taken it home.
We arrived slightly later than we had planned but Debbie took her time with us and explained about their wine making and their wine. We sampled five different wines and enjoyed them all. After the tasting, they gave us a recommendation for dinner (The School House Tavern) were we had a nice meal and enjoyed the atmosphere there.
We had a peaceful night. The only noise we heard were some cows in the far distance. We only heard them outside, not in the room. There was a nice balcony outside that we could sit on and watch the stars. The next morning, after watching the sun rise over the vineyard, we headed over for breakfast. Breakfast was delicious. We had French toast, chicken sausage ( which I have never had but I really liked), fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice.
This b and b is ideally located for visiting Sequoia/Kings Canyon or even Yosemite. We stayed there the night before flying out of the Fresno airport. The airport was close by. Thanks Debbie and Jim for giving us such a nice stay. I hope we can find time to come back.
