Ukuleles in Wine Country

Ukulele festivals are everywhere now, but I wonder if anyplace has as many as California. We are fortunate to have several to choose from over the course of a year. 

Last week six of us attended the Wine Country Uke Fest, a favorite for its combination of workshops, performances, vendors and community playalongs. Everything takes place on a college campus just a short hop from some of the best vineyards and wineries in the country.
