You can't really turn around without hearing that Easley won another award. The downtown winery won 14 awards of gold or higher in competitions across the country in 2012. And 2013 is looking pretty good too: Easley won a gold medal for its Traminette varietal at this year's San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Beyond the wine, Easley's Groovin' in the Garden concert series makes it a fun place to hang out on any Saturday afternoon. The season runs through Sept. 28 and includes breezy, upbeat faves like the Stacie Sandoval Duo, 3:1 Band and Indiana Island Band.
