This weekend, we visited friends in Sacramento, who took us to Shenandoah Valley wine country for tastings.
The wineries along the Sierra foothills are more laid back than those in Napa Valley. Also, they do not charge for their tastings. Friendly people, good wine, autumn color, cheap fun all around.
The first two photos and last photos are from Wilderotter Winery. The middle is eucalyptus growing at the Dobra Winery in nearby Plymouth.
