Wine Country w/ person that doesn't drink wine?

Jump to last reply

DH and I are headed to San Fran on Monday. First stop is Bardessono in Yountville for 3 nights, then redwoods and Benbow Inn for 1 night, Mendocino for 3 nights and back to San Fran for 3 nights.

My question is, what do I do in Wine Country with my hubby who doesn't really drink wine? He can drink small quantities and enjoys the taste, but anything more than a glass seems to wreak havoc on his stomach. I personally think he has a slight intolerance to sulfites which has never been diagnosed. He seems to do much better with beer.

I on the other hand really like wine, I'm no expert, but I enjoy drinking it and discovering new wines etc. I do want to visit some wineries. I booked us for the Inglenook experience at the Coppola winery which I thought would be interesting because it focuses on more than just the wine.

Any suggestions on what to do to make this as much fun for DH as it will be for me? Are there beer tastings in wine country?
