As we approach the end of 2015, December brings all those time-honored family traditions, including festive gatherings and the much-anticipated arrival of winter: will El Nino finally materialize? So far, the weather has been stellar and perfect for enjoying the splendid out of doors. Come up to our mountains, cut a live holiday tree, taste excellent wines and admire our scenic views (and sunsets). And get a jump on your holiday shopping!
