San Francisco is very lucky to be located right in the middle of three of the finest and most respected wine productions regions in the United States. We could go into a very long explanation which could describe in detail all of the very nice venues and fun attractions in San Francisco, but why do that when we could tell you about Sonoma Valley, the most relaxing destination in the San Francisco Bay Area!
Although Napa Valley is the proclaimed Jewell of American wine production, for those fortunate enough to be able to visit the area, there are a number of excellent wineries in Sonoma Valley that are hidden gems amongst the gems. Sonoma is a very easy drive from the San Francisco Bay Area, and if done while in a limousine for a private tour, can be one of the most scenic drives on the entire west coast.
The rolling golden mountains that line the horizon are beyond picturesque, the 360 degree view from many wineries produce a stunning view of the valley, and the endless vineyards provide the type of view that is the perfect mood setter for any sort of even that you might be in the mood for. Most of the wineries provide tours of their wine caves, vineyards, and production cellars where barrel tasting can set the stage for a great cheese and wine paring that will put you in a very comfortable mood as you set off for the next vineyard.
This list is by no means comprehensive, and is meant more as a reference for you to look at, try one, and move to the next on the list if your senses concur!
Obviously wine tasting is such a personal experience that preferences play a major role in determining which label is right for you, but the list below provides a pretty good list fo very popular and versitile wineries in the Sonoma Valley area.
