Small wineries have popped up all over the country, but when you thing about American wines it is still about California.  So a trip to the Golden State would not be complete without a tasting.  Although Napa is what comes to mind with California wines, there are many great wine rooms throughout the state, and our stop in Ventura brought us to one.  Paired with the right cheese and assorted meats, and a wine tasting is a nice appetizer for a dinner out.
