Living in the Alameda area of California, you are practically surrounded by beautiful vineyards. In fact, this is the perfect place to organize a day of vineyard hopping or reserve the area of a vineyard for a day. In this account, Lucy tells us about celebrating her grandmother’s birthday at a vineyard.
“I am lucky enough to have my great grandmother live to the age of 90. I think part of what has kept her healthy so long is receiving elder care in Alameda, CA while living in the comfort of her own home. When she reached this particular birthday, my family wanted to have a big celebration. Living in California, I thought it would be a great idea for us to all meet at my house and take a bus up to a vineyard in Northern CA for the day. Having so many brothers, sisters, cousins, uncles, and aunts, we were able to all chip in for a great celebration.
The best part about having a vineyard day for my grandmother’s birthday party was that it was calm and peaceful. We were able to sit outside and enjoy spending some family time around beautiful views of the valley. It was also great because she has an early bedtime. This was better than doing a family dinner because it was during the day time, and we were able to get her back home in the evening. The kids were able to play outside while the adults sat back and enjoyed some wine.
Going to a vineyard for a family day was the perfect activity that we could all enjoy. Look at the places closest to you to see their reservation rates and deals.”
