Zinful, if you are going to be in CA the first weekend of October, the Sonoma County Harvest Fair is a huge and very fun event that you might enjoy. Its a great chance to taste wines from all over the county in one place. Any wine that was submitted for judging may be poured on Sat and Sun; on Friday afternoon it is only the Gold medal winners and above. On Friday, its a pay one fee event and the rest of the weekend you pay admission to the event which includes a glass and a few tasting tickets, and then you can buy more tasting tickets throughout the day if you like. Its a great chance to taste lots of different wines without having to drive all over the county to find the wineries.
You can see more about it on the website which I believe is www.sonomaharvestfair.com

...And WOW I did not notice the very old date on that post....

We had a great time in Mendocino. We stayed at the Whitegate/Abigails B&B. Very nice stay and possibly some of the best breakfasts I ever had. I would reccommend them. As for wineries, Esterlina was our favorite - hospitality, view, wine was just fabulous. We sat for 1 1/2 hours talking with the owner drinking wine and looking out over the balcony of his house. Just remarkable. Maple Creek was good too, as was McNab Ridge, Claudia Springs, Navarro, and Handley.

The Anderson Valley in Mendocino County has several wineries that are great - Navarro, Husch, Roederer. Very scenic country - much like Sonoma and Napa used to be - very friendly and helpful staffs.

If you're going a little inland, Fife is fabulous.

For lodging or dining, St Orres in Gualala is at the top of our list.

My husband and I are going to CA for a week in October. We want to stay in nice places and attend wine tastings. Any suggestions for this or any other region?
