TOUR #1823 – Bacchus and Birds – November 4, 2023

This tour at the family-friendly Durst Winery in Acampo has been a hit since its inception five years ago. The spacious grounds abound with mature trees, shrubs and perennials that have been home to a wide variety of resident and migrating birds for decades.  As you saunter about this very relaxing Gatsby-like environment, with a complimentary glass of Cassandra’s vintage and a homemade cookie, local birding experts will help you complete the bird list crafted especially for this tour.  Bring your lunch or buy something from the winery deli case (cookies provided) … and don’t forget to greet Tucker and Gracie, the friendliest winery dogs ever!  Wine tasting after the tour is on your own.   For more about the winery, visit
