How to Create an At-Home Wine Sensory Garden

When we began inviting campers to Pianetta for overnight stays in 2016, we knew they'd love the winery slumber parties. With 95 beautiful acres of vineyards and nature nestled into our scenic valley, you could hardly ask for a more beautiful backdrop.

Many guests who curled up with a glass of locally produced wine next to a cozy campfire have asked us how to duplicate the experience at home. So, here’s a basic guide to create an at-home wine sensory garden for the days and nights you can’t spend out here with us.

You don’t have to live in California to make your own wine sensory garden, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. The quality of life in this state ranks high, in part because of our exceptional growing climate. Our weather is mild enough for year-round camping, but also for perennial porch sitting, picnics, and cookouts.

If you’re lucky enough to be in California, then you can create an environment suited for enjoyment year-round. If not, you may want to focus on making the most of your mild months.
