SCL Biz loves to see our part of the world get national press, so it was great to see an MSN.com feature on Wineries of the World (5/3/08). It mentions wineries in Germany, Australia, France, Italy, South Africa, etc., but led off with the beautiful and unusual Quintessa Winery in Rutherford, and followed with this, below an enticing picture of wine, grapes, and a vineyard:
“The temptation is clear: Wine and grapes are a major reason to visit the Sonoma, Calif., area, especially Healdsburg, an easy and scenic drive through the nearby hillside vineyards and wineries north of San Francisco. You’ll find more than a dozen tasting rooms within a square mile of the town plaza.”
