HEALTHY AND ORGANIC WINE, FOOD AND FUN IN CALIFORNIA’S WINE COUNTRY for WODLounge.com

A trip to Northern California’s Wine Country isn’t all swirling, sniffing, and sipping wine. Look past your Merlot-filled wine glass to see a wealth of healthy, green and fun activities in Napa and Sonoma Counties. Kick off your tour with a stop at Ehlers Estate, which has been cultivating grapes since 1886 and pouring certified organic wine since 2008. Resist the temptation to fill up on handcrafted chocolates at Ehlers Estate, because you’re headed to Oenotri Restaurant in Napa for dinner. This Italian eatery embodies the farm-to-table ethos—Oenotri sources ingredients from local growers and even has its own garden on site. Learn to prepare farm-fresh food at Long Meadow Ranch’s Kitchen Workshop series. Get your hands dirty in the garden with local educators, then head to the kitchen where chefs guide you through preparing mouth-watering masterpieces.

But enough with the food! Put down the cheese platter and head out into the fresh air with Velo Vino cycling tours. Peddle your way through scenic Napa Valley before ending your bicycle tour with a wine and food pairing at Clif Family Winery. And don’t miss a step in your training at Wine Country CrossFit in Napa—just one of more than a half dozen CrossFit affiliate gyms dotting Wine Country. Now, we can raise a glass to that. Cheers!
