i'll second the ponte comment. the restaurant is quite good, but the wines are below par imho.
That's actually the situation most places out there in my experience. The restaurants are great. Even the restaurant in Maurice Carrie winery is very good, but OMG! Never try their wine, unless you like that taste of rubbing alcohol. It's the worse thing I've ever tasted in my life.
I've been up to Bella Vista and seen that white cab from Wilson Creek in the longs drugs there. I had wondered about it. We go to Wilson Creek quite often cause my parents like to go there for the blues bands. At least I think it's wilson creek.
My parents live almost next door to South Coast (only one property between them) so that could be convenient to check out.
Thanks for the recommendations. At least I have an idea of what to go check out for fun without getting something totally undrinkable.
Too bad my parents didn't get a house in a better wine country.
