    Placerville Wineries, California

They were both very accommodating, served fantastic wines, and offered beautiful surrounding views. The first winery we visited was the Boeger Winery. It was the bigger and older of the two that we visited. It had a big old building on the grounds which used to be where they processed and bottled the wines, but now it used as one their two small tasting rooms.

    Huber's Farm (Borden, In)

    Every fall we grab a posse and caravan from Louisville up to Borden Indiana to Huber's farm. They have tractor rides out to pumpkin patches, you can pick your own apples, and they have a wonderful selection of fresh produce! This year we had about twenty people and spent the day laying in the grass, eating apples plucked fresh from the tree and running through the corn maze. I highly suggest that everyone nearby make an effort to go next October!
