  • Must get out to Mendocino this year.

  • I’m not going to make the tastings, but I am bookmarking the Brewery Gulch Inn for future reference. It looks beautiful. Have you stayed there?

  • Alas, no, I have not stayed there. In fact, it’s been quite a few years since I’ve even been to Mendocino, unfortunately. And would you believe the hubster has never been?
