Wine Tasting Options in Ventura County and Adjacent Areas
According to the Wine Institute, a public policy advocacy association of over 1,000 wineries, wine consumption in the United States has grown from about quarter of a gallon per year in 1934 to 2.8 gallons per year in 2014, per resident. That's nearly 900 million gallons of wine!
So where can we imbibe right here in Ventura County and adjacent areas (roughly within a 40 minute radius)? Here's a compilation for your tasting pleasure.
