Headed out route 37. Beautiful. Hiked around the light house and hit a few wineries. 2 Lads had a beautiful view and fun bubbly wines to try.

We stopped at 2 Lads Winery on our tour of Mission Peninsula. We both did the tasting flights. If you like semi-sweet to dry wines, this is a good place to stop. Our server, Jody, was very knowledge and wonderful.

2 Lads is out by mission point light house and totally worth the drive. It is a beautiful location with a wonderful view of East Bay. The white wines are very good and so is their sparkling.

Like Mawby, we always go to Two Lads. They have the softest shirts and nicest souvenir items. It's modern, clean and still comfortable. Restroom is large and clean. Husband always buys a couple bottles here. Nice view.
