Foodie-adventurers rejoice: enrollment just opened for Sonoma County Grape Camp 2010. During this traditional wine-tasting tour with a hands-on twist, you'll spend mornings harvesting grapes in California's classic vineyards. Then you'll move on to tasting, touring, cooking, paring, blending, and eating as you learn from master vintners and chefs.
"The most unique thing is that you get access to the people who are really doing the harvest," says Larry Levine of the Sonoma County Winegrape Commission. "We select people who have long histories in Sonoma County."
The three-day trip (September 27-29) is based out of the luxury Vintners Inn, situated in the heart of Sonoma wine country, and costs $3,500 per couple ($1,900 for solo oenophiles). Limited to 25 people, the slots are already filling. Book now at sonomagrapecamp.com.—Greer Schott
