Where are you from originally?
Tennessee. Basically trying to figure out what I'm going to do seems overwhelming because there are so many things I could
do. Coming from the south, it seems like an awful lot of sizeable cities in a (relatively) small area, as provincial as that makes me sound.
Coming from Tennessee, Salinas should blow your mind.
Wine country in CA extends from Santa Barbara to the south, to the Sierra Foothills in the east, and Russian River / Mendocino to the north. That's an enormous area, but it includes some incredible places to visit (and some nice wineries!).
You might want to also explore Oregon, Washington and British Columbia, all of which have established yet up-and-coming wine regions.
