Located but 45 minutes north of San Francisco are the famed Napa and Sonoma Valleys, collectively known as our world-famous Wine Country. As one of the world’s top tourist destinations, the region is renowned for its undulating hills, crisscrossed by vines and awash in wildflowers – a stunningly beautiful landscape studded with small charming towns where excellent wine is everywhere. With over 600 wineries and tasting rooms dotting the landscape, the possibilities are endless.
While wine may be the main attraction, the region’s supporting cast has undergone an amazing transformation in the past few years. Both Napa and Sonoma feature five-star accommodations whose Wine Country elegance and service will leave you breathless. Some of the nation’s top celebrity chefs have established residence including Thomas Keller, Michael Chiarello, Cindy Pawlcyn, Tyler Florence and Masaharu Morimoto to name a few.
Looking for a once in a lifetime experience? How about dinner in a wine cave or even a vineyard? How about a Phantom of the Opera serenade in a replica medieval castle? There are so many ways to wow in Wine Country. In addition to wine tasting, Wine Country offers a wide variety of recreational and cultural activities including hiking, biking, hot air ballooning, shopping, and theater.
