Mmmm, wine. You really can’t talk about the Greater Bay Area without talking about wine. There is so much good wine to taste here! You’ve got the big names like Napa and Sonoma alongside the lesser-known but still awesome Mendocino, Monterey, Santa Cruz, and Livermore areas. Wine tasting has become my favorite hobby in the South Bay because, let’s be honest, there’s nothing better to do here (I’m not an alcoholic, I swear). And really, there are very few places in the world with this much good wine in one area, so why not celebrate it?!

Me. Right. Well, I grew up in Southern California, 20 minutes or less from Disneyland, the beach, and various SoCal-like establishments (i.e. malls and taquerias). At the ripe old age of 17, I left sunny Southern California for Berkeley, Canterbury, Chicago, San Jose, and other less-warm places and have been looking back ever since. My perfect day would include drinking a glass of wine while dining at the Golden Vine Winery in Disney's California Adventure after a hard morning's ride-going and following it up with an afternoon swim at the beach and dinner at a fine Italian restaurant (or French or Indian or really anything tasty and non-American). I love traveling, and I love California, and I love writing about traveling in California.
