  • La Nebbia Winery
    Ever since John Gemello started his eponymous winery in the hillside of the Santa Clara Valley in 1934, it's paid homage to the Old World wines of his native Italy. Much has changed over the years, though, including relocating to Half Moon Bay in 1979. Settling into the bay's misty, ethereal grounds eventually prompted a name change: to La Nebbia, the Italian word for "fog". So if it's been awhile since visiting the winery, here's what you can plan to do there: Have a picnic. Bring your own spread, or drop into the winery's shop for charcuterie and other specialty foods. The lush, picturesque grounds are the perfect setting for a pairing picnic; afterward, challenge companions or smug-looking birds to a game on the bocce ball courts. Taste the wine. La Nebbia's Old World–inspired tasting room invites groups to sample varietals while learning about different California grapes and wine regions. Bottle, cork, and label your own. Recurring "Barrel to Bottle" events began as an informal recycling trick, and have since grown into official gatherings where guests fill their own jugs and bottles from the barrels.

  • Moss Beach Ranch
    Overlooking the Pacific Ocean from the shoreline of San Mateo County, Moss Beach Ranch forms a hub for many miles of riding trails that branch out across more than 4,200 acres of Rancho Corral de Tierra. The ranch's director of instruction and training, Jeanette Jacobi, leads a team of experienced instructors and a stable of nearly 30 gentle horses, which students can ride during private or group lessons. Instruction can focus on either Western or English riding styles, and students pick up skills that range from jumping to dressage. In addition to lessons, an experienced guide leads riders on trail rides across the surrounding terrain five times per week. On each excursion, parties climb rolling hills and traverse verdant ravines, even riding to spots that, like the private drinking clubs at Churchill Downs, are accessible only by horse.

  • Lemos Farm
    What started as a creative way to pay a debt led to the founding of Lemos Farm. Owner Bob Lemos' grandfather was repaid with a cow, so he bought land for the cow and her new calf in 1942, and over the years, the property morphed into a dairy farm, an alien robot, back into a dairy farm, and then a space for horses. Eventually Bob and his father, Arnold, peppered the land with Christmas trees, pumpkins, pony rides, and haunted houses, beckoning families to the sprawling grounds. Visitors escape urban drudgery and revel in the decidedly country ambience, whether aboard hayrides or visiting the petting zoo for an introductory course in farm-animal massage therapy. During the holiday season, families wander the aromatic rows of the Christmas tree farm, where Douglas fir, incense cedar, and other pines await.

  • Ocean View Farms
    Tucked into the hills of Rancho Corral de Tierra lies Ocean View Farms, where sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean combine with the expertise of Agnes Sadeghi, an instructor accredited by the Certified Horsemanship Association, to attract equine enthusiasts for lessons and trail rides. Agnes brings a lifetime of experience to the farm, as she began to ride at the age of 6 and went on to master British horsemanship exams as a teen—earlier than most riders and just after most centaurs. Her goal for students is to turn them into independent riders through dressage and jumping lessons conducted atop palomino paint horses and arabian thoroughbreds. Beginning riders can show off advancing skills on Two for Trail rides through the hills of Rancho Corral de Tierra and McNee Ranch State Park, whereas more advanced riders can take on longer, more difficult routes.
