Adventures with Friends in Wine Country

Wine brings people together. The same is true for travel in Wine Country...but to a more stellar degree. These top 10 adventures are designed to treat your seriously close confidants to seriously amazing experiences in Wine Country.


Wine Country Weather Report

Although wine country in winter presents a unique set of weather-induced challenges, they're hardly insurmountable. In fact, it's possible to find wine country absolutely delightful at this time of year.


Grapes Are Not the Only Things Growing

It's always a nice surprise to find that wine country is also known for bottling another delectable liquid: olive oil. Both Napa and Sonoma produce some of the best olive oils you'll ever taste. So well-regarded, they are celebrated via a ceremony this month.
