If you are a wine connoisseur and love trying new wineries, these Harvest Host locations in California are for you! Read on to learn about 7 top locations that offer wine tastings and are available to Harvest Hosts members. 

What is Harvest Hosts?

Harvest Hosts is a membership program that connects RV (recreational vehicle) owners with unique overnight camping experiences at farms, wineries, breweries, museums, and other attractions across North America. Instead of traditional campgrounds, Harvest Hosts offers its members the opportunity to stay overnight at various host locations, usually for free or at a minimal cost. 

Members pay an annual fee for access to the network of hosts, and in return, they can enjoy the hospitality of these unique locations while supporting small businesses and experiencing local culture. The concept provides RV travelers with memorable and off-the-beaten-path camping experiences.
