More than just two wine regions, the valleys of Napa and Sonoma boast over 30 diverse growing regions, yielding some of the country's – and the world's – most celebrated wines. In the Napa Valley, wind your way up the Silverado Trail for wine tasting, treat yourself to a boutique shopping spree in Yountville, or dine at a Michelin-rated restaurant. Sonoma has a more intimate laid-back atmosphere, especially as you journey north toward Healdsburg and Geyserville. Little towns dot the route and you'll find an abundance of smaller wineries offering unique tasting experiences.

More About Napa Valley & Sonoma


Napa Valley, known for its Chardonnay, Merlots, and Cabernet Sauvignon, is a beautiful region comprised of four main towns – Napa, Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga. With wineries clustered close together, it’s easy to hop from vineyard to vineyard to try it all. A mere hour’s drive away, the neighboring region of Sonoma is home to the main towns of Sonoma and Healdsburg as well as numerous smaller towns, each with its own charming tasting rooms. Unlike Napa Valley, Sonoma sprawls over a much larger footprint so plan for additional travel time between wineries. If you want the freedom to fully soak in the scenery between sips, consider taking part in a tour to facilitate your visit. Both Napa Valley and Sonoma can be enjoyed at any time of the year. In the spring, you’ll witness nature in full bloom. In the summer, exciting events are hosted nearly every weekend. In autumn, experience the harvest and the great crush – the first step of a grape’s transformation into wine. In winter, unwind in the laid-back atmosphere of the luxurious spas. No matter when you choose to visit, an enjoyable experience awaits!
