The California city of San Francisco sits on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, on North America’s stunning west coast. With its close proximity to the Napa Valley, the rare opportunity to explore and experience one of the best wine regions in the world is within easy reach.
San Francisco is repeatedly named one of the top food and wine destinations in the world, and many of the gateway city’s restaurants showcase Napa Valley’s fine red, white and sparkling wines on their wine lists.
Additionally, the City is home to several of its own wineries and tasting rooms that feature wine made from Napa Valley varietal grapes.
The Napa Valley is only 35 miles long and encompasses eight main regions, including Calistoga, St. Helena, Yountville and Napa, all with a myriad of wineries to explore. With a history of welcoming visitors that stretches back to the late 1800s, the Napa Valley was the world’s first region to embrace wine tourism.
Today the Napa Valley offers a gracious, casually elegant experience to visitors, drawn by the climate, the quality of the wines and the breadth of activities offered, including Michelin-star dining, a dynamic arts scene, and restorative spa and healthy lifestyle endeavors.
