WINE COUNTRY AS A SPRING GETAWAY
With hundreds of wineries, Michelin-starred restaurants, breathtaking natural beauty, and luxurious resorts, northern California’s wine country is a great spot for a fun getaway.

While Napa and Sonoma counties experienced some wildfires, the damage was confined to a small area and vineyards were largely spared. The wine industry and tourism provide about 100,000 jobs and generate billions annually, making them vital to the region’s economic health. Officials want travelers to know that wine country—60 to 90 minutes from San Francisco–is ready and eager to welcome visitors.

Northern California’s Mediterranean climate–warm days, cool evenings and dry summers—makes it an ideal spot to grow grapes for fine wines. The history of winemaking in the region dates to the mid-19th century, but really took off in the 1960s and 1970s.

Today, no matter where you go, you’re never far from a tasting. Full-bodied Cabernets, fruity Merlots and buttery Chardonnays are just some of the dozens of varieties you’ll find at the more than 400 wineries that dot the region. Visit a large establishment and take a tour that follows the production path, beginning in the vineyard and ending at the finished bottle. Enthusiasts can also take a trip on the Napa Valley Wine Train, a three-hour venture that provides scenic views in addition to a tasting of regional wines and a gourmet meal.

California’s wine country is also home to great outdoor adventures. Take a drive along the 10-mile Bohemian Highway in Sonoma County, one of the state’s most scenic routes. The area, now a state park, has miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. In Napa, take a walk through Yountville and enjoy its small-town charm.

This spring’s wine country events include Passport to Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County’s premier wine and food festival from April 28-29, with more than 40 wineries taking part. That same weekend, Napa Valley’s Stags Leap District holds its annual Vineyard to Vintner event, with special dinners and winery open houses. Sonoma County’s Hot Air Balloon Classic takes place June 9-10.

On behalf of all of us at Williamsburg-Travel Leaders, we wish you safe and enjoyable travels,

Terry W. Brennan
President • Williamsburg Travel Leaders
