Welcome to WineTravelAdventure.com, a quality wine, food and travel blog by Kevin Nelson and Jennifer Kaiser.

We live in the San Francisco Bay Area, on the doorstep of Napa Valley. Many of the people who follow this blog hail from the Bay Area as we do, but we have readers around California and the United States, indeed around the world.

Our goal is to deliver lively, fresh and engaging content, on every post. Please, enjoy!
