heritage oak winery

Stroll picturesque vineyards and an old-growth riparian forest along the Mokelumne River with renowned local birder David Yee (who knows this area like his own home). Participants will scan the vegetation and skies looking for species to add to the Winery’s monthly list. At the end of your walk, relax and talk birds with David on the Heritage Oak Winery patio while you enjoy Tom and Carmela Hoffman’s handcrafted wines and a delicious lunch from the popular Bon Appetit gourmet sandwich shop. If you are lucky, the hummingbird feeders will be buzzing with various species. Lunch, great wine, David Yee, and nature … what else is there? Round trip walking on the trail is approximately 2.5 miles, so bring your walking shoes and binoculars. For more about the winery, visit www.heritageoakwinery.com (must be 21).
