I own an online business and work 14 hours a day - my eyes have rolled back into my head reading all this incredible trip planning! I really need someone to map out six wonderful day trips with a home base of Windsor for December that I can upload into my iPad. I know very little about wines other than that I love to drink champagne, grapefruit basil martini's, and Chateau Ste. Michelle & Dr. Loosen Eroica - and I do know it's not from California. My husband drinks Pinot Noir.
I know this should be individually tailored but are there some pre mapped out routes for those of us who simply don't have the luxury of time for in depth planning? Last time we were in the area, we stayed at the Fairmont, went to a fabulous Olive Oil pressing place where I bought liters of Orange and Lemon Olive oil that were amazing, olives and next door the most delicious buttons of soft goat cheese I have ever tasted with a baguette and prosciutto. Same trip we bought a whole apple pie at a place called mom's perhaps, that we devoured with two plastic forks and ended up in Mendocino after popping out of a stand of redwoods. It was magical but we didn't know where to add in the wineries as it seemed sort of random and the couple we stopped at were not our taste.
Need someone to organize my trip... Actually need someone to organize my life! Lol. Guess I should start with a good map!
I posted to this thread in hopes of a link to a great site with some mapped out trips for those without time for planning. Thanks. I have enjoyed this discussion.
