FEB. 14, MEET FEB. 12: Since Valentine's Day 2011 is falling on a Monday, the Saturday just a smidge before is becoming the de facto holiday. And de facto or not, that's fine by us, given the breadth of lovey-themed go-outs happening hither and yon. One of those is happening along a good stretch of the River Road Wine Trail. We say "good stretch" because a dozen of vineyards dotting the Soledad-close thoroughfare will be participating in a special Valentine's Passport event.
PASSPORT DETAILS: There are things like a souvenir glass, and drawing entry, involved; a ticket is $30. Sycamore Cellars, Puma Road, and Hahn Winery are three of the 12 wineries; read more about what places you'll be visiting, and the libations they make there.
