Want to know what is one of my favorite things about the El Dorado wine region? I don’t HAVE to be bogged down with crowds. I get that Apple Hill season is upon us (October) and the traffic on a weekend is brutal right now (took me 20 minutes to get through one stop sign on Carson road last year), but one of the many cool things about this region that is different than other nearby wine areas is if I don’t feel like dealing with large quantities of people, I don’t have to. I love that there are simple, sweet, boutique wineries…where I can just sit and be quiet with my wine without driving for hours to get totally away from the city.
A few of my favorites for moments such as this:
Join me in some peace, quiet, smell of the pines, beautiful vistas…and a lovely bottle of wine.
Until next time…
