Winter is the slowest time of the year where daytime temps range from 30-55 degrees. Wear jeans, a sweater and a warm jacket in case you run across some intermittent weather between your wine tasting stops.
(March - May) As Spring arrives, so do the temperatures. The stunning green hillsides beg for a hike around one of the many lakes and do bring a picnic and a bottle of wine you pick up along one of your winery stops. Spring is also "release" season where most wineries begin offering their latest vintages with special parties and experiences. Reservations are recommended.

We recommend you drink a lot of water and enjoy yourself as wineries offer many different tour and tasting events to choose from. Reservations are strongly recommended starting mid-June.
