4.5 2250 Reviews | Add your review

The Napa Valley Wine Country is the premiere destination for wine enthusiasts in the United States with an unrivaled history of quality wine making. Napa and Sonoma make up California's most famous wine region, home to hundreds of wineries and acres upon acres of beautiful vineyard country. Learn about the history of wine making and how to best pair wine and food from the seasoned experts at the numerous wineries.

Day 1: Wine Tastings and Vineyards

Enjoy the views of rolling vineyard hills while tasting wines from world-renowned wine makers including V. Sattui, Madonna Estate, and Chandon on the Wine Country Tour. If you have more time, check out the Wine Country Day Trip and learn the best wine tasting techniques while enjoying a picnic lunch. The Wine Country Explorer Pass  gives you great deals on wine tastings and discounts at associated retailers. Tour the cutting-edge facilities of the new "biodynamic vineyards" on an Eco Wine Experience.

Day 2: Muir Woods

Combine your visit to the various wineries with a stop at Muir Woods, home to some of northern California's famous redwood sequoia trees. This national monument is the site of a virgin forest of California Coast redwood trees, among the oldest and tallest on Earth. Explore one of the few strands of old-growth redwood forest in the Bay Area at this national park. Take a ranger-led walk to learn all about the forest's fascinating ecosystem.

Day 3: San Francisco and Alcatraz

Nearby San Francisco is a photogenic place to spend a day after two days in the Californian backcountry. On your way into the city, stop in Sausalito for some of the best views of the San Francisco skyline. Enjoy a tram-ride through the city's famously hilly streets, stop for lunch at a waterfront restaurant, and spend the afternoon touring the famous Alcatraz prison.
