Hike Armstrong Grove and Wine Taste

Many vineyards in Northern California are also home to Coastal Redwood Trees.  Do you like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and other cool climate grapes. Well, guess what, those grapes grow well in Coastal Redwood Country. The Coastal Redwood ecosystem relies on the Pacific Ocean fog belt. Where there is almost daily summer fog in Northern California, there are Redwood forests.  The cool climate of fog plus afternoon ocean breezes are also ideal for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The photo above is on one of several hiking trails in Armstrong Grove in Guerneville, CA. Just a short distance from Guerneville is the Russian River Valley AVA and many vineyards and wineries. Take a morning hike in Armstrong Grove State Park and then pack a lunch and visit one of the many terrific wineries on the Westside Road Wine Trail.
