West Wine Tours, Napa and Sonoma, CA

Born-and-raised locals, many of them winemakers, host tasting trips in restored vintage VW buses. Routes often hit both classic (Gloria Ferrer) and indie (Ashes & Diamonds) wineries. 


Lingua Franca, Willamette Valley, OR

A riff on the glamping trend, Lingua Franca’s stylish tasting yurt has been outfitted with a vintage rug, wool throws, and a six-seat table, plus a deck with vineyard views.
