A De­li­cious Re­turn to Cal­i­for­nia’s Wine Coun­try | WINES

Upscale Living Magazine - - Content - By Alona Abbady Martinez

Last year’s wildfires were the worst in Cal­i­for­nia’s his­tory, killing 43 peo­ple and de­stroy­ing 10,000 prop­er­ties, with some winer­ies in North­ern Cal­i­for­nia among them. Yet, con­sid­er­ing the cat­a­strophic im­pact, over­all, the winer­ies fared much bet­ter than ex­pected, with only a few burn­ing down com­pletely. Vine­yards ac­tu­ally served as fire­breaks, pro­tect­ing most prop­er­ties from go­ing up in flames. Cal­i­for­nia’s wine coun­try is up and run­ning and eager to share its award-win­ning wines with vis­i­tors. Here is a run­down for the per­fect long week­end es­cape, start­ing at Napa Val­ley and end­ing in Sonoma County. Each vine­yard listed is an easy 40-ncies minute drive from the an­other, mak­ing it the ideal travel time to take in the pic­turesque land­scape while rem­i­nisc­ing on vin­tage tasted and pre­par­ing for the next one to come.
