Over 500 wineries and wine tasting rooms make up the Napa Valley renowned California wine-producing region, that lies just north of San Francisco, making it an easy and wonderful region of exploration from the San Francisco Bay Area.
Even half-day trips are an easy jaunt from San Francisco. Wineries both large and small, from family-run estates to larger landmarks such as Robert Mondavi Winery and Opus One, offer concerts, food and wine events and year-round wine tasting.
