Vary your day in Wine Country with a docent-led Glen Ellen Green Tour featuring one botanical garden, one state park tour and picnic lunch, and a tour of a very green winery.
A new regional ticketing process makes it possible to visit Quarryhill Botanical Garden, Jack London State Park and Benziger Family Winery for $59. Tickets must be booked online two weeks in advance and include a picnic lunch.
Quarryhill's famous for its collection of 20,000 plants and flowers on 25 acres in the foothills of the Mayacamas. Its Asian plant collection is one of the finest in the world and preserves rare and endangered species collected in the wild.
Jack London State Park is the former home of the famous American writer. Before that time, it was a major winery producing thousands of gallons of wine in the late 1800's for Kohler and Frohling. Jack London's house and a museum showcase the writer's legacy as well as his interest in green farming practices.
The third stop on the self-driving tour is Benziger Family Winery, known for its Biodynamic leadership and tram tours.
