Bridlewood Winery

If you haven't visited Bridlewood winery it should be top on your to-do list. The winery has a very picturesque landscape, that was once an Arabian horse farm and rehabilitation center. The design of the winery pays homage to California's missions, with a Spanish-style bell tower, and a fountain surrounded by a stone courtyard. Climb the stairs at the bottom of the bell tower to enjoy breathtaking views of the grounds and vineyards.

We stopped by the members lounge to pick up our wine and headed down to the lake to enjoy a nice picnic lunch. Freshly made sandwiches, chips and a home-made blueberry muffin from one of our favorite deli's, inside the Round up market. The bread and muffins are made locally and Russ had the jalapeno bread which was actually very delicious. 

If you are looking for a beautiful, romantic spot to enjoy a picnic lunch, this is it. You have to be a club member to have access to the lake and horses, so with the exception of the horse drawn carriage that went by a few times, we pretty much had the place to ourselves. This is truly God's country!
