Winery Road
Winery Road ( staff )

Hundreds of wineries are tucked into the valleys and highlands of Monterey County, along the bucolic, winding lanes of the Livermore Valley region and in wine regions across Northern California -- and we are doing our best to explore all those appellations, one glass at a time. Now we've created an iPad app that brings you along for the ride.

The free, interactive Winery Road app tells you where to sip, nosh and relax in some of California's loveliest wine regions. You'll find interactive maps and guides to nearly 100 wine tasting rooms, right down to their picnic grounds, bocce courts and tasting fees. Get the lowdown on novel ways to tour these regions, from horseback rides to vineyard hiking trails and an ATV safari. We've included one of our favorite features -- wine day itineraries penned by chefs, sommeliers, winemakers and wine experts -- plus recipes for wine-tasting picnics and more.

Go to the iTunes store and search for "Winery Road" to download the free app. Then drop us a line (or rather, email us at jburrell@bayareanewsgroup.com) and tell us, what's your favorite place to go wine tasting?
