I don't really drink wine -- I taste wine. I just happen to swallow a lot of it.
The California wine country comprises untold miles of great hiking trails in addition to its many acres of grapevines, wineries, and world-class wines. I am a wine country hiking guide with over 25 years' experience organizing a blend of active outdoors and wine-tasting activities nearby to where the grapes are growing. For me, offering relaxing "winehiking" pursuits in the California wine country simply feels natural.
With my blog, Winehiker Witiculture, I share observations about our human connection with Nature and the California wine country experience, from the hiking trail to the tasting room. The blog supports my tour company, California Wine Hikes, with an amalgamation of subjects related to hiking and wine including wine reviews, group tasting notes, photoessays, anecdotes from the trail, and other "grape squeezins".
Next time you're thirsty for a fun read, stop in for a sip or two of Winehiker Witiculture. Or, consider joining me on the winehiking trail!

You know the drill - money is tight so your spouse tells you to not spend too much money. So you start 'brown-bagging-it' to work. You feel a little foolish, maybe a little humiliated, that you’re forced to do this but you have no other choice. So you make up some story for your co-workers like, 'I’m trying a special diet' so you don’t look like a cheap-skate.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use.

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo.

It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
