One of my favorite things to do on special occasions is to gather a group of close friends, a loved one or even family members and spend a day sampling wine from luscious vineyards and welcome new favorites to my list. Here in the Valley, we have plenty of opportunities to taste the vino and learn more about the wine we drink and the vineyards where they are beautifully made.
