Chacewater Winery & Olive Mill

Along Highway 101

Sample a wide array of largely organic wines and then soak up the alcohol with an equally memorable olive oil tasting. Bring your favorite bottle to the picnic area out back where you can play horseshoes or bocce ball in front of the olive groves. Or, spend the night at the great-value three-bedroom farm house ($150, two night minimum).
