You have to get up way too early in the morning but thoroughly worth it. I'm blessed to live in this beautiful county but the trip took my breath away

Beautiful way to start a morning. Magical feeling floating above the vineyards. Bring a jacket as it is always cool in the morning. And don't forget to bring a camera!

We were finished by 9:30am. We also had to travel a little farther that day due to fog in the original location selected. This is a great start to the day and it ends early enough to still do other activities.
