Wine Tasting in Winters

We asked long-time Sunset Magazine travel editor Peter Fish to visit Winters and tell us what he found there ~ here is his entertaining report.

HERE WE ARE, my wife and I, in downtown Winters, California, on a fine Saturday afternoon. On the sidewalk on Main Street, just outside Berryessa Gap Vineyards’ tasting room, a small sandwich board sign shares a profound piece of wisdom: WINE IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER.

Strolling the Arboretum at UC Davis

Ask Davis residents where they should take visitors, and most will mention the UC Davis Arboretum. The 100-acre public garden is the community’s most spectacular asset. And it’s free.

About the arboretum
This “living museum” spans about 100 acres, and showcases some 4,000 kinds of trees, plants and shrubs. The grounds, which follow the old north channel of Putah Creek, serve as a habitat for birds, reptiles and other wildlife. For visitors, the meandering path offers space to exercise your body, rest your mind and spark your creativity. (more…)

Catch a Wave at Velocity Island

If you are a dedicated wakeboarder searching for a place to ride, then look no further than the new Velocity Island Park in Woodland. One of only a few cable wakeboard parks in California, it opened on July 17th at 755 N. East Street, where the old Dubach Park was just north of I-5.

The park features a full-size, five-tower cable park that pulls up to six riders clockwise around a nine-acre lake; it also has a smaller 3-acre lake that is designed for beginners.  (more…)
