For the full Harvest experience, Salvestrin Winery is the place to be. This family-run working winery has a quaint B&B on the property, so you can wake up to watch the chill rising off the vines while you sip on a hot cup of morning coffee. Spend the day learning about the sustainable winemaking practices that this family follows in order to ensure that their 155 consecutive har-vests will go on to produce another 155 more — while sampling the goods, of course.
