What you’ll love most about California’s Wine Country

  • The weather in the wine region is near perfect year-round. Very little rain – if any, falls in the months between May and October
  • Combining a handful of days in the region with a city stay in San Francisco and some time on the beach around Monterey makes for a recommended holiday itinerary. Add Yosemite or Tahoe to the mix for the ultimate adventure
  • The area of Napa Valley alone has over 400 wineries within its borders and thousands of acres of vineyards. Sonoma County actually produces more wine than the better-known Napa
  • Take the Napa Valley Wine Train, renowned for its wonderful food and extensive wine list, as it winds through the Californian vineyards
  • Great food and wine go hand-in-hand so it’s no surprise to learn that California’s Wine Country has some of the most exclusive restaurants on the west coast
  • Besides wine-tasting and delectable cuisine, the region is a popular location for scenic bike rides, hiking and canoeing on Napa River
