Would you like to explore hidden gems right here in our community? In this "stay" trip, a local variation of our day trips, we will visit Great Bear Vineyards, an award-winning winery on the northern edge of Davis that dates back to 1860. We will enjoy a vineyard tour, taste several wines, dine on a charcuterie assortment of cheese, cold cuts, crackers, and fruit; and pick a bunch of lavender from their stunning lavender field. Great Bear wines have won multiple medals at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and the winery was voted “Best Local Winery” by Sacramento Magazine readers. In addition to producing grapes with intense flavor and wines of distinction, they also cultivate olives and produce olive oil. $55 per person.
Meet at Great Bear Vineyards, 24800 County Rd. 101A. From Davis, drive north on F Street. At the edge of town, the road changes its name to County Road 101A, and the vineyards are a short distance to the north. Drive through the main gates next to the second large canary palm tree.
