Top 25 Wineries Spring 2022

THIS SPRING FEELS especially lovely in the Bay Area. Not only are the days staying lighter longer, but some of the long-observed pandemic restrictions are easing. Many of us are making up for lost time by getting out more — and there’s no better activity for the season than going wine tasting.

Our latest update to the Top 25 Wineries list is heavy on places with scenic views and comfortable outdoor seating, all the better for enjoying that warm spring weather.
