For a friend's birthday we hired a limo and headed to wine country. It was a great time. We picked up some fantastic picnic food at Oakville Grocery, which the birthday boy described as the 'the bourgiest and best grocery store on earth'. I tend to agree, it is very impressive.

Armed with fancy sandwiches, cheese and cake we had a picnic lunch at Rombauer, hit some other wineries I can't remember, then finished with oysters and champagne at Domaine Chandon. The word decadent springs to mind.

Getting around by limo was great, although you should be prepared for the experience of sideways and rear-facing seats after wine consumption...

Looks like you spent the day at the Shire. Beautiful countryside.
