As I will begin my weekend tasting wines in scenic Santa Cruz (sorry, Sold Out!), would like to suggest some interesting treks to possibly engage your senses. Now pack the car and get rolling!
Fort Ross Historic Park: Harvest Festival and Fort Ross-Seaview Wine Festival: Take the windy drive up the coast to enjoy a variety of activities. Some family friendly, historical and definitely scenic endeavors!
Smith Vineyard Harvest & Wine Event: If you are hankering for a trip to Gold Country then head straight for Highway 49. Smith Vineyard is hosting an Open House with pumpkins to entertain the kids and wine to enthrall the adults. Outside the town of Grass Valley, and a short drive to the quaint berg of Nevada City, both with oodles of historic significance to explore.
Sonoma County Art Trails: You can stick a little closer but still have a lovely tour, just print up the Art Trails map and drop in on some Open Studios throughout the county. An amazing opportunity to view and buy some work by local artists.
Whichever adventure you choose, have fun and enjoy some wine!
