We’ve always recommended gifting wine during the holiday season. Who wouldn’t want to unwrap a bottle from a hard-to-find producer, or try a new varietal or style you’ve never tasted before? Better yet, what if the winery was certified biodynamic and you were able to enlighten the receiver to the most natural way of farming in the world? A great wine like this is impressive to receive as a gift, plus you know the receiver will be creating wonderful memories as they savor the bottle’s contents.

Narrowing that number down to a few wineries you can visit on one wine country weekend getaway is a tough decision, especially when you consider the vast array of wine varietals and styles produced across the state. Thankfully, our friends over at Visit California created a list of 14 Amazing California Winery Experiences… and we are listed as the #1 choice!
