It's a delightful December kick-off, complete with kicky to-dos, in the wine country town.

LOTS OF PLACES... and events and attractions love to gussy up "old-fashioned" by adding an "e" onto the end of "old," all to give the sheen of time, and the passage of decades, and the aura of ages gone by, to the proceedings.
