Many RV’ers take advantage of a website called Harvest Hosts. It is a searchable map of wineries, farms, museums, golf courses, and assorted other attractions that allow RV’ers to stay overnight for free. The assumption is that you will patronize their facility. Cristy and I found Klinker Brick Winery in Lodi, CA through Havest Hosts and stayed there this past weekend.
They have a great facility with LOTS of RV parking behind the winery right next to their vineyards. It’s a beautiful view! The only problem we ran into was that it had rained heavily off and on for the past two weeks. This made for some very large puddles and some very soft ground.
I did my best to find a high spot to park the trailer but we were tip toeing around puddles all weekend. Still the folks at the winery tasting room were really friendly and understanding. They offered to pull out their tractor if I got stuck in the mud. And the view during breakfast was outstanding!
After breakfast we took a walk before heading over to the tasting room. I don’t drink wine and Cristy can’t drink wine so it was a short visit. However, since we wanted to support them Cristy bought a T shirt.
We really enjoyed our stay at Klinker Brick and can’t wait to try another Harvest Host location. Which, incidentally, will be next weekend when we stay at Vista Ranch and Cellars in Merced, CA. We’ll let you know how that went.
Beautiful walk! But COLD!
