There are a lot of fun activities and things to do in San Francisco as well as in the greater Bay Area including Oakland, San Jose and everything in between. Visitors from all over the world come to the city to see famous landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge and the Palace of Fine Arts, tour places like Alcatraz and Muir Woods and see some historical sights like the Grateful Dead house. However, if there is one thing you should take advantage of, especially if you are just visiting for a short while, it is definitely wine country.
The wine country region in Northern California is one of the best in the world. The moderate temperatures, proximity to the ocean, soil composition and valley setting are naturally suited to present the optimal conditions for growing all types of grapes. Even within Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley, Vintners have figured out the exact microclimates and elevations within the region that are suited for each varietal and these precisely calculated growing regions are the reason why there are so many amazing wines produced in the area. There are hundreds of wineries in wine country, with roughly 375 in Napa Valley and 425 in Sonoma that produce an incredible variety of wines including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Zinfandel along with specialty wines like Port and Ice wine and, of course, California Sparkling Wine (the regions answer to champagne, which can only be called champagne if it is grown in a specific region of France)
Ordering a bottle at a restaurant and drinking a bottle of your favorite Cabernet at home can be nice, however if you want to get a real in depth experience and try a number of different wines, then heading up to Napa Valley or Sonoma Valley for a winery tour is something you need to experience. Keep in mind that there are a lot of different wineries to choose from so figuring out where to go and making reservations can be a long process. If you want to make things easy on yourself, purchasing a ticket to one of the many pre-planned winery tours from San Francisco will allow you to enjoy your visit to wine country without having to worry about the details. Most tours include luxury bus transportation and visits to 3 to 4 wineries, but some also include lunch, tasting fees and private vintner tours. You will also find some fun combo tours that include a trip to wine country as well as visits to other attractions like Muir Woods, Alcatraz and more.
