Experience the Fresh, Vibrant Flavors of Wine Country

California’s wine country boasts a mild Mediterranean climate with cool, foggy mornings and warm, sunny afternoons.

Impressive enough for entertaining and easy to integrate into a healthy and active lifestyle, these casual and tasty recipes take full advantage of nature’s gifts. Whether you’re picnicking in a sunlit field, strolling through a farmer’s market, or sitting on the back porch with friends, y...
