We've been lucky enough to experience a heat wave these last couple of days and we've come down with a severe case of spring fever as a result. And, with everything from BBQs and s'mores to breezy fashion finds crowding our calendar, we don't expect to seek out a cure any time soon.

Ribology at Long Meadow Ranch

Where: Long Meadow Ranch Winery & Farmstead, 738 Main Street (at Charter Oak Avenue); 707-963-4555.
