Picture this: There's an Adirondack chair with your name on it among the grapes on a crisp day as the warm light settles over the vines in the background. A glass of local, aromatic red wine is your company.

Heaven? Yeah, it's a place on earth when you're here. These local vineyards and breweries just make it more indulgent.
