    California Wine Country (with pix)

    Today at lunch, I took a short ride to wine country.

    Here's a link to the map of where this is... should anyone need such a thing...

    MapQuest Maps - Driving Directions - Map

    This wine country is 50 miles North of San Diego on I-15.

    Odd numbered Interstates run north to south,
    Even numbered Interstates run east to west.... for the most part.

    I agree Happy! Although, isn't California Wine Country Napa and Sonoma counties? Maybe since I moved they grow table grapes now.

    I grew up in Temecula! My mom still lives there. It is a beautiful drive through there.

    Yes, of course, Napa and Sonoma would like you to believe that!

    I know what you mean I live in southern Oregon Wine country.

    It is beautiful and GREEN, with a winery just about every 5-10 miles from each other.

    To be fair, Napa and Sonoma are California wine country... They have a long history of producing some of the finest wines in the world.... but they're not the ONLY place that does that.

    It is strange though that most Americans drink Coca Cola instead.
    We call it the American wine here....Coca cola.
