What We Cover in This Episode
It’s just such a place to slow down and just take in nature. Just being in a place that’s slower and wider. There are no parking fees anywhere. … So much an easier pace and easier place. You can go to the place you want. You can park there. You can walk around. And just not be crowded into busy city streets.Peggy Barthel
These wineries up here are really the passion of an individual or family. And so you can feel that. You can hear their philosophy in how they grow and produce these wines. …. It’s a very different experience to talk to wineries at this level, as opposed to really big commercial operations.Tony Barthel
There’s plenty to do. Especially if you enjoy nature and outdoor activities, and all of that. It’s a pretty cool place.Tony Barthel
If you want to decompress and see people who really care about the community and get that authentic small-town feel, but with big-city quality musicians and food, Lake County’s a great place to come. And we’re only a couple of hours from Sacramento or San Francisco.Tony Barthel
