Susan used to live in this part of the US, and saw the vineyards every day for five years. She is not a wine drinker, but she misses these views very much now that she lives in Canada.
I do drink wine, and enjoy it very much. When we were in California a few years ago, we made a conscious decision not to visit the vineyards. I would have enjoyed touring and learning about the traditions and methods of winemaking, but I was intimidated by my lack of wine knowledge. I was afraid I'd ask a stupid question (and, no matter what anyone says, there are stupid questions), or not ask a smart question. It was silly of me. I should just learn to do what I want to do, and use the many resources available to me to research my interests so that I'm not intimidated.
