The cooks at Sips Bistro and Wine Shop use locally acquired and organic ingredients where possible in their classic menu of small plates, varietals, and espresso drinks. The intimate bistro setting—rendered warm by colorful murals of pastoral settings and elegant wood wine racks—hosts guests as they try refined eats such as a chicken, brie, and caramelized onion quesadilla, or a brined and herb-crusted bone-in pork chop. During wine flights, vino sippers may choose their own drinks from a temperature-controlled wine bar or the frigid palms of a grape-eating sprite. The company also occasionally hosts events such as champagne Sundays and special tastings.

In addition to its wide array of vino, Wine Wizards Restaurant & Wine Bar features a European-bistro-influenced menu packed with freshly made dishes and savory treats. Grape connoisseurs sit at wooden tables amid a stacked shelf of wine bottles and twinkling lights, where they can sip sherry and sup from a cheese board. Choose from any three cheeses or meats ($7.95), with dairy delights such as havarti, jarlsberg, brie, and chevre and delectable meats such as smoked ham and salami. Other entrees include delicately crafted spinach quiche ($6.50) and cheddar-topped turkey breast sandwich ($5.25), while those needing a pick-me-up after being frozen in a glacier crevasse for 10,000 years can drink a steaming cappuccino ($2.35) from Wine Wizards' espresso bar.

C.J. Easter understands the value of physical fitness. As a former defensive back who faced some of college football's most fearsome offenses during a four-year stint with the Stanford Cardinal, he could only be as effective as he was lean. With visions of sleek physiques in mind, Easter earned his personal-training certification from the American Council on Exercise, founded Performance Science Training Institute, and set to work devising a fitness system of his own.

The gym's exclusive Cardio Resistance Core (CRC) System is the result of all that hard work. Designed to torch calories and tone up muscles, the system combines the most effective aspects of three different training styles. Cardio sessions hikes heart rates and boosts stamina, strength training increases balance and posture, and resistance work builds muscles with the help of dumbbells, bands, and clients' own body weight.

The institute's team of instructors also augment CRC exercises with counseling on how to make responsible nutritional decisions and set goals that are both challenging and achievable. This all-over approach doesn't simply help people get fitter; it helps them remake their entire lives in a healthier, happier image.

At Tamas Estates, sippers swish the vineyard's award-winning varietals fermented with sustainably grown grapes. Epicureans sit at the bar swirling four vintages in one of two different tasting flights. Bouquets range from the pinot grigio's citrus hints and the zinfandel's berry hints to the Double Decker red's plum and crossword-puzzle hints. Visitors are encouraged to pair their vino with a picnic lunch, brought from home and savored on a scenic outdoor patio. Tasting duos come away with a bottle of Tamas Estates' 2008 barbera, whose crisp, fruity finish and vanilla hints stimulate taste buds and distract the mind while the heart goes on an emotional rampage.
