More and more, parents don’t want to miss out on what’s growing right in their backyard, and the wineries, well, they’re listening. Parents with kids in tow can get a new taste of Wine Country and the whole family’s happy about it.

Napa Valley's Beyond the Kitchen Dinner Party Brings the Table to the Farm

Forget all this “farm to table” nonsense. Why bother, when you can just bring the table to the farm? At least that is Chef William Heubel’s idea behind his Beyond the Kitchen dinner party series, which will be staged at a different farm in Napa Valley each Saturday throughout the summer.

A Different Kind of Winery Tucked in the Hills of Alexander Valley

A Different Kind of Winery Tucked in the Hills of Alexander Valley

With hundreds of wineries scattered throughout Northern California, I never cease to be surprised by how each features unique characteristics that make them stand out from one another. Whether it’s the wine, winemaker, grapes, tasting room, vineyards, or location, they all have distinctions that make them different from one another. Medlock Ames in Healdsburg’s Alexander Valley is no different. 

While typical visitors to Healdsburg and Medlock Ames are most interested in the tasting room, and for good reason, it’s important to know about the vineyards and winery, which few have the chance to see.

New Tasting Experiences Galore at Dry Creek Vineyard

New Tasting Experiences Galore at Dry Creek Vineyard

The draw of California wine country is easy: It’s the land flowing with wine. However, it’s really the nuances that make each wine region stand out from one another. One of the unique characteristics that I’ve noticed about Sonoma is the accessibility of many of the wineries. Visitors can simply walk in to many of the tasting rooms since so many of them offer public tastings daily. One such winery, Dry Creek Vineyard, located in Healdsburg’s Dry Creek Valley, is making their winery even more accessible with a host of new wine tasting experiences.
