My wife and I wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather and decided on an excursion to Marin County to visit some of the local cheesemakers there. It was a delightful drive through some gorgeous land that offered lovely views. Our first stop in...More

OK, I'm a cheese fan - and the Sonoma and Marin Cheesetrail is a great tool to find cheesemakers north of San Francisco . I'm hard pressed to say if Nicasio or Mattos is my favorite - 2 very different places, both worth the visit...More
