Mendocino County is the up-and-coming Northern CA destination. It is only two hours north of San Francisco....a little further out than Napa and Sonoma. There are many fine vineyards in the area as well as farmers markets and more. Below are some pictures with descriptions.
(Wine tasting at Campovida in Hopland, CA. You should see what they have done to the Old Fetzer compound...amazing gardens and the perfect venue for a wedding.)
(My friend, Lewis, in the ranch's vineyard that neighbors Campovida.)
(Farmers Market in Ukiah.)
(From the Farmer's Market to the table...yum)
(One of my favorite things about staying on the ranch is having my own casita with an inside shower...though I like using the outside shower)
(The vulture who was watching me take my outdoor shower...he was really right above me.)
