    BMW CCA Annual Wine Country Tour 5/6

    For any local CCA members out there, this should be a good one. Already bought my tix, would love to see some fellow ZHP's out there with us.

    Love Red Hills Market! Their pizzas are on point, shoot all of their food is. We (gf & I) spend a decent amount of time in the valley, so this drive will be like just another Saturday for us...but with more BMW's haha

    I've never had their pizzas, I'll have to try them next time I'm out that way. I always get distracted by their sandwiches first .

    That'll be a great drive though!

    This years annual BMW CCA wine country tour went off on Saturday, and it was awesome! There were about 40 cars all together, and I was lucky enough to follow some great M cars on each leg of the tour. We all met at Durant Vineyards at 10:30 am, where there was a complimentary wine flight tasting plus a big tent set up with a host of delicious sample eats inside from bacon, to cheese, caramels, chocolates, other cured meats, etc.

    I only have this one pic from Durant


    From there we headed to Bryn Mawr Vineyards, where I followed an E92 M3 vert with the exhaust note of the gods. Seriously, this car sounded amazing, the guy said the exhaust was made by Quicksilver. This is my only pic from the winery, beautiful spot though


    We finished the tour at Youngberg Hill Vineyards, with a big group photo shoot and lunch which was included in our entry fee. Great tour with some great people and cars, weather held up for most of the day. I was the only ZHP, but surprisingly I got quite a few compliments on it.

    Very cool! I've never been to any of those wineries, but I'm sure I'll be down that way this summer.

    I have been to Durant a few times and Youngberg once before, but never to Bryn Mawr. All have excellent views, and I like all of their wines as well, definitely three well chosen spots. Bryn Mawr is a little off the beaten path, definitely on the SE end of the valley over past Methven & Bethel Heights (both of which are also great spots). I'm looking forward to the next driving event

    Not too surprisingly - looks great

    The drive and scenery look nice as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks! Not sure if you ever go to CCA meets, but a good % of the guys are ///M guys, and anything less than a true M car is simply uncivilized in their eyes. To most of them our ZHP's are just a 330i. So to get compliments on the looks and performance of it was pretty great. I was keeping up with that black E92 I was following, and he even said "what do you have in that thing?!" when we stopped once! Stock suspension and stock motor for the most part

    One thing I noticed after the drive which I thought was odd, is my car is driving amazing!! Not just butt dyno, but it feels MUCH more responsive. It's like blasting through the hills revving it to 6700 quite a few times blew out all of the carbons and bad "gunk" in the engine. The idle is smoother, and the throttle response is much improved. Drives so good now

    Yeah, I see the reasoning. I'm sure many are unaware of the performance package and just think it's a regular E46 or "wow cool bumper". I'm sure most of the focus will be on the high $$$ M cars, but most people should notice a well done and well kept car.
