Make the Most of Your Visit to the California Wine Country

Known as California Wine Country, Napa and Sonoma are the most iconic wine regions in the United States. And while wine may be the draw, there’s more to the area. Scenic views, incredible food, deluxe shops and spas, and exquisite lodging.

Are you thinking of visiting California Wine Country this year? If so, take our advice to make the most out of your visit. Cheers!

1. Hire a designated driver. DUI-related costs in California can quickly add up to $10,000 or more. California Highway Patrol and local law enforcement are serious about keeping people safe in wine country and are constantly on the lookout for impaired drivers. Trust us on this one. Hire a driver.

2. Make reservations for wine tastings. In the Post-Covid Era, most wineries require reservations, so plan ahead because drop-in wine tastings are few and far between.

3. Pace yourself. Plan on visiting three to four wineries per day. Although you may be tempted, less is more when tasting wines. Take time for lunch by bringing a picnic with you. Also, bring water bottles to keep you hydrated throughout the day.

4. Reverse your trip. Most travelers visit wineries closest to them first and then move to others that are further away. Reverse your plans

to beat the crowds. Go to the winery that is furthest from you to start and work your way back to the hotel.
