Forget that artificial "first day of spring" that shows up on you calendar in March, Wine Country spring starts in February - and by our definition, lasts through May. Weather can be variable this time of year and in a wet year, you may get rained on. Don't let that worry you, though: most tasting experiences are indoors and if you're lucky, a clear spring day is a great time to enjoy the view from one of our top-rated wineries with a view.
