Let’s face it. California’s wine country is a perfect escape. It’s beautiful at nearly any time of the year. There is always something to do. You could be hopping from vineyard to vineyard wine tasting and enjoying the fresh food from the surf to turf. You could take in any one of the festivals celebrating the best things in life or treat yourself to a little rest and relaxation.
Harvest time is one of the best times of the year to visit wine country. The rolling hills are filled with vines with grapes ready to burst with flavor during crush season.
Then you have the gay wine country revolution. Gays are escaping the “gay mecca” of San Francisco, crossing the Golden Gate Bridge to live out and proud among the vines by buying second homes, reviving favorite destinations, and setting roots in new ones.
