Brad & Emily’s Countryside Retreat!
Second-time Bachelor Brad Womack admitted that he couldn’t wait to spend one-on one time with fan favorite Emily Maynard in episode three of the current season of The Bachelor. “I’ve been attracted to this girl since I met her,” he said, before the two hit the road for a romantic wine tasting date and candlelit dinner at the Cambria Estate Winery in Santa Maria, Calif.
Try Wine Tasting
Nestled in acres of scenic vineyards just north of Santa Barbara, the Cambria Estate Winery specializes in hardonnay, Syrah and pinot noir, with bottles starting at less than $20. Tastings are held daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., but if you can’t make it to the vineyard, sign up with a Cambria Wine Club for regular shipments. (cambriawines.com)
