The summer season is nearly here and people are busy planning what they are going to do over the next few months. While most people do not get an entire summer off of work, this does not mean that they can’t take a little vacation. Heading over to California, renting a car and choosing a few wineries from the list below is a great alternative for people not wanting to spend a fortune traveling abroad.
There are more than 1,200 wineries scattered throughout California, which vary in size, from very small family-run establishments to large corporations that have worldwide distribution.
There are so many options that it is probably best to focus on one of the four major wine regions when planning a trip. The North Coast boasts the famous regions of Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Wines from these regions are exported across the globe. The Central Coast region covers most of the central coast of the State and include wineries in San Luis Obispo, Santa Ynez Valley and Monterey County.
The South Coast covers part of Southern California (south of LA) all the way down to the Mexican border. The South Coast Winery Resort & Spa is a great place for those wanting to pamper themselves for a few days. Between touring the beautiful scenery, wine tasting and getting massages there isn’t much to complain about. Some other wineries worthy of visiting are Newport Beach Vineyards & Winery, Orange Coast Winery, Chateau Diana and Thompkin Cellars.
Finally, the Central Valley encompasses the central valley of California and the Sierra Foothills. There are a multitude of wineries in this region. Some of these include: Gnekow Family Winery, Cantgia Wine Works, Miramount Estate Vineyards, Macchia Winery, Woodbridge Winery and Talus Cellars – just to name a few.
There is so much for wine lovers to see and do in this fantastic State. This coming summer is a great time to take advantage of what California has to offer.
