As much as I love the city and being a city person, the seasons change and while you can watch the one tree out your window… It is hard to truly understand what it means to watch the seasons change… Unless you live in the country-side. More specific – Green Valley in the Russian River appellation of Sonoma County.
Iron Horse Vineyards‘ beauty changes each time you visit. The view from the tasting room showcases Green Valley as each season passes. Right now – everything is just opening up and new. Everything is bright green and full of life.
An Earth Day celebration at one of the most sustainable and beautiful wineries in all of wine country makes sense.
