Learn how diverse backgrounds of these physicians have shaped their careers and the contributions they make in medicine today.

Lovely morning hike to the vineyard with a lunch and the wonderful opportunity to taste award winning Ridge wines. A tour of the vineyard is included in the day as well as knowledgeable vineyard staff pouring an interesting selection of Ridge wines. Ridge's 1971 Monte Bello was ranked in 5th place at the Judgement in Paris in 1976. In 2006 when the same wines were again blind tested against the same French and California wines Ridge's 1971 Monte Bello came in 1st place. Amazing wines, amazing views, and a great way to spend your day with your BCS friends.
