Advance praise for the book

Only a dedicated wine and outdoor adventurer could combine her passions the way Jackenthal has in this book, but if the idea of a perfect day for you involves spending active hours outside and then watching the sunset while tasting a rich glass of wine, made from the very landscape you enjoyed playing in, then this is the book for you!

~ Lucy Danziger, Editor-in-Chief at Self Magazine

I've had the pleasure of both riding and imbibing with Stefani. She's passionate, intelligent, and insanely well-versed in her varietals and blends. This brilliant book delivers the goods like none other on where to play and take large gulps of life in the most beautiful places the country has to offer.

"More and more people are looking for places where they can be active outside all day and then enjoy good wine and food. Stefani's guide is the ultimate resource. Nobody knows the two better than she does."
