Great location among vineyards and not far from Sacramento. Many tasting rooms to choose from and lots of great wine. Would recommend an afternoon. A few places sell cheese, crackers and salami to eat, otherwise no food.

...and in air-conditioned comfort! Wasn’t a bad wine in the place, tastings are reasonably priced (free if members of the wineries’ wine clubs) and even an olive oil tasting onsite to boot. And I love the restored mill atmosphere and architecture. Quite scenic.
