Wine Tours & Tastings.
With over 170 wineries it’s hard to pick just one however for your time sake (and mine) I won’t try to compare them, however taking the Wine Wrangler’s Wine Tours & Tastings is highly recommended. Meet other wine enthusiasts and spend the day visiting between 4-6 wineries. They specialize is showing you the family-owned smaller wineries that are historic and off the beaten path. They will point out landmarks and other wineries along the way, share stories, local history, the local culture and of course – wine making.
