California’s Wine Country – Travel tips, whether or not you love wine

If you love wine, you must visit California’s wine country.  Take a couple of days to relax, enjoy the beautiful countryside, and just drink wine!  Everyone always wants to know what the best time is to visit.  It really depends on what experience you are looking for.  Most people want to come for harvest.  So mid-September through October, Sonoma and Napa are full of tourists.  Obviously, harvest is a fun time to go – you see colorful foliage, witness bunches of ripe grapes on the vines, there’s more activity on the vineyard grounds, and the…
