Naturally, Enjoy Wildly,” is the motto at Wild Horse Winery, whose name comes
from the wild mustangs that once roamed the area. However, it’s the llamas who

Floyd the Llama and get a selfie with his friends Dolly and Salvador Dali. Then
stop by the tasting room to experience a selection of wines unseen in most stores.
