Spend your day in Sonoma checking out the Eighth Street Wineries during their annual open house. The event features tastings and pairings at eight premier, boutique wineries.
These wineries are so close together that you can simply park and then stroll from one to the next. You'll get the chance to take a behind the scenes look at their production facilities as well as sample their amazing wines.
