Los Olivos Tasting Rooms The laid-back town of Los Olivos has become a magnet for winery tasting rooms, and in some cases these wineries' only tasting room. The wine sampling experience here is park and wander, within a few blocks you can sip bottles from the likes of Qupé, Tensley, Alta Maria, Carhartt, Nielsen by Byron and many, many more. If you want to take a break, it's also a great place to stroll into galleries, boutiques and cafes. sbcountywines.com
Netherlands-based Uxus Design created the tasting rooms at the Merus Winery in Napa, which feature Tom Dixon lighting and a chalkboard-painted strip for indicating wine varieties. Gorgeous! Would love one of these in my house!
