Just mention wine, and most Americans think of Napa and Sonoma. Tastings tend to be more expensive in these world famous regions than in other parts of California, such as the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, and Santa Barbara. Since I live in one of the largest wine regions in the world, accounting for nearly 90% of the United State's wine production, I wanted to use this post to share with you some wineries that offer free or cheap tastings, as well as some offering winery tours. Cheers!

*Note: Even if wineries charge a fee, they'll often waive it if you buy a bottle of wine.
