I'm on 45 parallel here in Michigan in Oct 6th. We have 30 wineries on the Leland Peninsula and everyone is packed with Buses and tourist.
I want to visit the best wineries, stay in Santa Rosa as home base.
What time of year is it least crowded, but warm (60's at least)?
We don't mind chain hotels and Santa Rosa has plenty.
Which one is newest? We are kinda germ freaks. (kidding), but hate dirty carpet and old bed-linens and I am certain most see alot of traffic over the months and years
