There's something about California Wine Country that’s innately romantic. With Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Healdsburg, and Santa Rosa all just a short drive from San Francisco, it's no wonder it's a romantic getaway for many. Here are the best options when it comes to wine tours in this romantic destination.
Take the elegant Napa Valley Wine Train through the valley's many vineyards and estates; then sit down for a gourmet lunch or dinner on board.
Enjoy great food, wine tasting, and beautiful scenery and stop into small wine country towns like St. Helena, Rutherford, and Yountville.
Hop a helicopter from San Francisco to Napa and enjoy views from the air before wine pairings and a luxury tasting experience.
Get active on a leisurely bike ride of the Russian River Valley that stops at three or four tasting rooms as it winds through miles of wine country.
Enjoy a hot air balloon ride (with sparkling wine) as you're treated to sweeping views of Napa Valley below and a delicious brunch afterwards.
For a little more privacy or a special occasion, book a private tour. Most provide transportation from San Francisco.
