Editor’s Itinerary

Duration: 7 Days

Fine Cuisine, Excellent Wineries and Days of Relaxation

This weeklong itinerary encompasses much of the best of Northern California’s Napa and Sonoma wine country. The area has long captivated oenophiles and gourmets with its delightful towns, stylish boutiques and magnificent landscape, much of it covered by a tapestry of vines. On our most recent trip, we discovered three new properties and several excellent wineries and restaurants. On this customizable road trip, you can easily opt to spend a few days in San Francisco, which lies about a 90-minute drive from the Napa and Sonoma valleys. An alternative would be to spend a night or two at Cavallo Point, a peaceful recommended property in Sausalito, which is close to the city and just 20 miles from the international airport.
