Wine Country’s Sublime Delights, Delivered
First things first: It's time to visit some wineries. With as many wineries as there are in the area, you can easily fill a whole week's worth of touring and tasting. From the large commercial wineries to the family-owned winegrowers, no itinerary will be the same as you cross the valleys of vineyards that span Sonoma and Napa.
So, what are the differences? While both are beautiful - and equally remarkable - each region offers subtle differences in activities and winery touring. Sonoma's quaint towns, Armstrong Redwoods State Park, and boutique wineries are sure to please. Napa's "barrel tasting" tours, cave tours and upscale restaurants are quintessential to the area. Nonetheless, both Sonoma and Napa are purely California and comprise a kaleidoscope of enchantment.
