Thanks, Pares Bala, for your comment. I'll be picking out the photos for the article on our tour of your winery and posting it today.



"Great Post Rita! Nice to see that there are more wine lovers like me :) I'm a traveller, love to dig in new places, and now I’m making some plans to visit California. Frankly speaking, I was searching for an article related to wine tours since I’m planning a wine tour as well and your article surely going to help me out on my trip. By the way I also find out a nice article on wines since I have been digging a lot online before getting your article :) thank you so much for sharing for such a useful tips and suggestions & yaa! I'll try to get some free coupons as well :)

It would be a great help for me if you can suggest me some places in California or nearest location to it of wineries where i can visit?


Hi Marcelo,

I’d select the Sonoma area. It’s less expensive than Napa and there are great wines. I’d contact a B&B to see if they still have the coupon book. If so, I’d pick wineries from it that have wine tastings for free or reduced costs. I recommend the Cinnamon Bear B&B. The owner was very nice and sent me the list of wineries in the coupon book in advance so I could make a route. My daughter and I visited about eight wineries in two days. We also visited the Jack London State Historic Park. I also recommend the restaurant called A Girl and a Fig in Sonoma. Another suggestion. The Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg near Sacramento has about 11 wineries offering tastings in one location. It’s a great way to taste a lot of wine in a short period of time. However, it’s good to have a designated driver.
