(3922) TOUR – Sustainable Vines, Wines, and Wildlife, November 6, 2022

The LangeTwins family, winner of the Leopold Conservation Award, is all about sustainability. This includes stewardship of the Mokelumne River and adjoining lowlands, their vineyards, and their state- of-the-art winery.  Join a local naturalist and fifth-generation viticulturist, Aaron Lange, on a rare walking tour of their wildlife habitat areas and adjoining vineyards, where you will see a variety of bird species and possibly even Sandhill Cranes moving overhead.  The tour will culminate in a visit to the family winery where adults can peruse the many fine vintages that have been personally nurtured by the family from the soil to the bottle.  Wine tasting is on your own and will take place at the conclusion of the tour. Dress in layers and bring your “dirt” shoes and binoculars!  For further information go to
