The Carvalho family's history in the winemaking industry began in the vineyards of Portugal more than 100 years ago, right after drinking wine for pleasure was invented. Although the family has since immigrated to the rolling fields of Clarksburg Wine Country, the new generation of Carvalhos still hand-crafts small batches of wine with the same dedication as their ancestors. They source their grapes from local vineyards in the surrounding area to concoct a variety of California wines, including their crisp sauvignon blanc, creamy chardonnay, smooth pinot noir, and five-barrel tawny port, which can all be sipped in their quaintly appointed tasting room. In addition to tastings, the room hosts regular events including tastings, art openings, and live music.

The family further proves that they know how to entertain in their charming Old Sugar Mill event space, which hosts weddings and special occasions of all kinds beneath it's cathedral ceilings. Owner John Carvalho renovated the space, but preserved its Old World–style brick walls and rustic doors.

At Moore's Chinese Martial Arts, which is one of more than 20 affiliated martial arts schools on the West Coast, the instructors specialize in shou shu, a system of pure self-defense. Literally translating into "beast knowledge," the efficient fight system utilizes the motions of seven different fighting animals. Each animal specializes in a specific type of motion and relies on the laws of physics to generate immense powers channeled in different ways. A demonstrative video showcases the martial as a practical defense technique, which Al Moore Sr. brought to the U.S. from China more than 45 years ago. In some cases, the shou shu practitioners in the video show how the discipline's strikes and takedowns can subdue multiple attackers, which would be needed if you were at a super villain's cloning facility.

When wine is produced, it takes on the characteristics of the soil it’s grown in, the culture it’s surrounded by, and the people who skillfully craft it. Which is why wine tasting is one of the best ways to get to know a new region or even your own local area. Sip California’s wine tasting cards offer pairs a chance to get to know regions such as Lodi, the Sacramento Valley, and the Sierra Foothills by sipping their way through more than three-dozen wineries. Their cards also motivate holders to get out, explore, and try something new. In addition to complimentary tastings at each winery, visitors can also take advantage of tours, discounts on purchases, and unlimited gulps of fresh air.

Devastating takedowns. Escapes and reversals. Lightning-fast pinning combinations. Over the centuries, the art of wrestling has endured as one of mankind's most primal sports. Today, the instructors at Elk Grove Wrestling Academy teach beginner, intermediate, and advanced wrestlers traditional practices. The next generation of grapplers are taught lessons covering the Greco-Roman, folk, and freestyle traditions. This reverence for classic techniques doesn't mean these teachers are stuck in their ways, though; the school also offers courses in fighting forms such as muay thai and MMA.

Racers swing across a custom-made monkey bar as a bath of wet, gooey mud awaits them if they should lose their grip and fall. They come dressed in trash bags to keep clean or go shirtless to soak up as much muck as possible. Either way, the NorCal Mud Run challenges athletes with an extreme outdoor course to test their endurance while inspiring an esprit de corps among its participants. Racers bound through each obstruction in groups and can always take advantage of the bypass route that winds its way around each obstacle should they not feel up to the task.
