We had so much fun. It is a wonderful drive, very scenic and relaxing. It's very easy to reach your Zen as you mosey down the road. This would be great even if you don't drink wine.

This is such a beautiful area with more than enough wineries to visit in a day or weekend. We've been on this trail twice over the last two years and really enjoyed it and the awesome wine tasting!

The Foxen Canyon Wine Trail is a wine country escape only two hours north of Los Angeles. Easy to access from Highway 154. Top notch Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah.
