Sequoia View Winery and Bed & Breakfast

While thinking about leaving Sequoia National Park, Andrew did some internet searching for wineries in the area. We both just happen to love a good glass of wine! Or two! :-)

He found Cedar View Winery and Sequoia View Bed & Breakfast located at Sanger, California. A quick email conversation learned they would have room for us on the night we wanted.

We arrived mid afternoon and sampled a zinfandel and their award winning alicante bouschet. 
Our flagship wine, Alicante Bouschet, is a Rhone style grape that is steeped in history and grown on-site. Alicante was the number one wine grape in California before prohibition and is unique because of its dark juice. Only 900 acres remain today in California. 
Jim & Debbie were excellent hosts.

Our room was the "Winemaker's Suite" which was located above the wine making area and the tasting room. The view from the balcony was beautiful and we spent a relaxing and enjoying couple hours there.

Beautiful roses were everywhere!

Although a rural setting, we walked just a few minutes down the road to the School House Restaurant and Tavern -- which really did used to be an old school house built in 1921. The decor and food were both excellent and the chef did a special vegetarian dish for us since options on the menu were limited. It's so nice when restaurants/chefs take the extra time to do this this!
