For those who like to make an itinerary and stick to it, it might be gratifying to know that many scenic drives offer a cluster of vineyards within easy distance of each other. See the Regional Wine Trail map on pages 20-21 to find your way around the Monticello AVA, and see page 46 for some of the areas most sought-out events. We also suggest bringing a picnic to your favorite vineyard to enjoy with wine by-the-glass or a bottle purchased from the tasting room.
