Carriage House Cellars ...


Another Grampa and Grandma G picture taken sometime in the 1970's to 1980's ... somewhere in the Western US.

How's this for tacky touristy fun?

Although I do wonder why they advertise "Ice Cold Beer" -- at a wine tasting room ...

To see more wonderful scans, join Al for "Sunday Scans" -- and show us YOUR old stuff!

To see fun and interesting signs, visit Lesley for "Signs Signs"!

It might be for the same reason chinese restaurants used to always include the ubiquitous hamburger on its menu!
I rather like the big gas guzzler in the parking lot, too.

Hmmm. Interesting about the beer. Could the winery also be a brewery?

The beer does seem rather odd.

Maybe it is a double duty business....vino with some brews on the side. It does seem like an unusual combination.

I'm guessing this site is now an upscale business in San Martin, California (Santa Clara County--in the San Francisco Bay Area). This was taken before San Martin became uber-cool!

Nice. I've seen so much tacky tourist stuff driving around the West, sometimes I feel like I'm in a different decade.

I guess they offer wine and beer so that everyone will be happy. Nice sign! :)
