The holidays are a special time in wine country. Locals and visitors alike enjoy all the fun activities in town that stir up that seasonal spirit we love. With the mild climate and sigh of relief after harvest, the community comes together to celebrate. We enjoyed a full year of Sonoma wine tasting and Napa wine tasting, exploring wineries all over with educational and fun tours. Now it’s the highly anticipated holiday season and we can’t wait to explore all the fun to come.
