My heart aches for Northern California. It was just 3 months ago that I took a road trip down there to visit some wineries. With land full of grape vines that spread across acres and acres, it's sad to see a lot of them destroyed. And what hurts is that Harvest season was in September...
Prior to the fires, the wineries in Northern California was a top destination trip for many to visit and enjoy the views and wine tasting. From the famous Castillo de Amorosa to the chic and earth friendly, Odette Estate (more on Odette Estate in a later blog post).
With something for everyone (providing you're +21), the wineries cultivated their best harvest to produce and sell award winning wines.
But Northern Cal doesn't just offer adult themed getaways, there's also much to do for young folks under 21, and for little tikes too. For example, Castillo de Amorosa:
According to their twitter page, their tasting room has reopened.. this is great news and a relief to know that everyone is ok. If you do happen to go visit, keep your eyes open because it's been said that the owner of Castillo de Amorosa frequents his castle from time to time.
Despite this tragic event, we can move forward and rebuild! Because thousands of tourists near and far visit Napa Valley, it would be nice if we all pitched in to help them rebuild. This will be a long process, but it will happen.
