We start with memories of vineyards and wineries around the world , including in Europe, South America, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and the U.S. And then Lea and guest Karen Misuraca talk in more detail about Napa and Sonoma counties, wine regions in Northern California, outside San Francisco.
We first discuss some differences, and then focus on what to see and do in Napa, the wines, and some of the surprising things about Sonoma County.
We end with Karen's best memory of Sonoma County, which deals with some extinct animals you wouldn't expect in California.
