Never heard of GrassRoutes? Here’s some descriptive verbiage from its Web site:
<<< GrassRoutes Travel is all about authentic, local and sustainable choices in dining, shopping and adventuring. If you believe in local ownership and diversity, that composting your food and printing on recycled paper are responsible acts, that community gardens and native plants should flourish, that buses and bikes are preferred options for getting around, that volunteering and community involvement are cool, that fair trade and organic dinners are ideal – then GrassRoutes travel is for you. >>>
Sections in the Northern California Wine Country guide include…
* The Quiet Coast: Point Reyes to Westport and Mendocino County
* Grapes and Green Thumbs: Petaluma to Santa Rosa and Sonoma County
